~*~ 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.

The hens and the eggs look good. Your tulips are lovely too. You must be spending lots of time in the garden at the moment.

I'd love a bigger garden so that I could have a few hens. They would have to be well behaved though!
