~*~ Hens etc ~*~
A couple of new members have been recently ,and very gently, introduced to my small flock.
A very pretty white Leghorn, these lay beautiful, white eggs.
I originally bought 2 at the sale but they are quite wilful & highly strung so I gave one to Mary's Dad.The remaining hen is continually trying to escape & despite my best efforts & the garden looking like a set from "Chicken Run", she keeps appearing on the communal green area to the side of the house.
The quails are enclosed in a nice run & are starting to lay nicely
This is what they give us on a good day ........
Always the optimist, I ordered the most recent, recent Elm Creek book, a follow-up to the Runaway Quilt & thorougly enjoyed it.....
Last Autumn, I planted some tulip bulbs in a vintage bucket and they have been glorious for the last 2 weeks.
