Some photos of the hens taken over the past couple of weeks, they have settled in and seem to be intent on taking over!
D.Aisling has christened them the Hitchcock hens.
One of them always hangs around outside long after the other 3 have bedded down for the night. A bit of a rebel at heart. Here she is investigating the high hedge, if she can't fly over it maybe she can go through it?!
No, I am not going to bed its too early and I am not afraid of the dark!
One evening as I was working on the computer I got the eerie feeling I was being watched.I checked the patio door ,no sign of anyone.
Then I turned to the window and here were 2 of my lassies gazing in!They had flown up onto the windowsill and one was looking over at me on the computer.
The other was watching the TV, hoping 'Chicken Run' or 'Over the Hedge' was showing?!
The girls lay 4 eggs most days now, last Sunday was very wet & windy and for some reason only 2 eggs were laid.
On Monday I went to check and found 3 eggs and 1 monster one which looked as big as a duck egg.
I felt sorry for the poor hen which had produced it!
I had a double yolk for my poached egg on toast. It is years since I saw one of these and it was a surprise to say the least.
Blogger Yesterday and today I am having problems with Blogger (again)!
I sign in and as usual I am taken to my Dashboard but when I click 'view Blog' I am not signed in so I cannot leave comments on other blogs!
I thought I would not be able to post but today I discovered I can access this through the dashboard .
It is very annoying to say the least, hopefully it will be corrected soon.
Gale force winds are still with us and are causing delays getting plants out on the plot, everything is just being torn apart with the wind.
