I know my chickens are popular, so I thought I would share a DAY with the gals.
8am or thereabouts they greet the world. Olwyn always first to leave the front door.
Like tourists make a bee-line for favourite sun loungers, so the girls have their favourite sun bathing spots. The cool hedge being a big hit!
Some, like Eva prefer the privacy of the shrubs.
Even if it's raining the girls love to search for grubs - the rain always brings them to the surface.
We discourage them from sitting on the roof but they have sat there before.
After a morning of sunbathing and food expeditions lunchtime brings home the worker and that means treats! A cheese scone in this case.
Serious business....egg laying. Each girl has her preferred time to return to the henhouse.
Whilst we are having glorious weather the all important dustbath!
As the afternoon passes the girls explore the field next to the house - usually for a couple of hours.
Being independent after a supper of golden rice ( a particular favourite) they make their way to bed.
I lock the door and they give me one last glance through the window before settling down for the night.
My DAYS have been very busy in the garden and I am so pleased with the progress.
Have a good day and watch this space.
D, for ABC Wednesday - through my garden which has to feature the gals.
