Every morning when I let the hens out there is a quick run over to the breakfast, always first to the feeding dish is Eva, closely followed my May.

At the moment we can tell how cold the night is going to be by the time the hens go into the henhouse - currently we have a Rotation of sleeping places.

Initially Olwyn was settling down with Bev, Mabel and Ernest.

After a few minutes however she changed her mind and headed towards the other end of the henhouse to settle down with Eva and May.

Ernest had a ponder but settled back with his flame Mabel and Bev.

Notice their feathers are coming back.

Due to technological hitches I was unable to post last week, so this covers my Q and R in my ABC of life with the Nesbitt Chickens.

For more ABC fun follow the link in my sidebar.


  1. Love Ernest's (?) feathery legs!

  2. I'll tell him RD xxx He does seem to charm the ladies!

  3. Love Earnest slowing plotting along after the ladies, to have some breakfast. Adore the feathered legs so handsome.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Glad you are back in "business" Denise.
    Love watching all the hens and Earnest doing their thing.

  5. Your photos are fabulous, Denise! Chickens are always so wonderful, when they are feeding and walking around. They give me a feeling of being at home!
    Have a great day tomorrow!

  8. Oh how sweet, they have lots of personality don't they? Xxx

  9. Is it me? None of them look very happy.

    1. They are very happy CW - probably a bit miffed that I was using a flash on my camera to recoed their every moments as they get ready for bed. The way they run around the garden and stretch their wings indicate a content life.

  10. your henhouse is a delight.

  14. I love how you named all your hens! I'd struggle with my lot - current numbers 36 - as they're all Isa Browns and therefore all look the same!!
