had to put delphine in the segregation pen for safety whilst i took mum to hospital and didnt want girls to have unsupervised access {warn} we got home and mum safely settled on the sofa i let the girls out into the sunshine i sat out with them and little bobbble head delphine came out and shot onto the rockery at the back of the trees ,the girls were around her and no problems ,she didnt zoom or make a noise she just kept one eye on them as she scratched and dug a little hole until all i could see was her little tufty bobble ,bless her those 5 little toes have a great deal of strength in them she dustbathed most of the afternoon she even joined in the scrum for sweetcorn albeit on the edges but thats a good sign ,it made me feel better anyway .

all my girls came and had a look at the babies this afternoon but marilyn is fascinated by them its odd when they run around beeping she makes a little low cluck and peers at them through the wire ,maybe shes maternal >shrug< or has put herself in charge of integration duties ,she was a bit nasty tempered at teatime when i put them in the Walk-in-Run frankii was determined to love her and she was determined he was not going to love her ........... he runs after her and she runs away but when she stops he stops but she cant half make a racket so frankii got put in the sin bin to cool off ,naughty boy )de:

the baies are growing so quickly and love being sat on my knee ,mum insisted i took isabella round to say goodnight to her and the babies or "my little beepers " as she calls them so it cheered her up she loves the hens and i got told off for puttimg frankii in the sin bin

little delphine took herself off to bed tonight into the ark bedroom so it looks like she is going to be resident in that bedroom and is more than comfy ,when i checked she was sandwiched beween dorey and marilyn the two biggest hens so at least she will be cosy and warm tonight {hug}

tomorrow will be no doubt a little busy with mum so the diary may be a little late in the evenings

thank you sandy ,did much the same as yesterday hen wise but mucked out the hen house and refreshed the whole Walk-in-Run dusted and sprayed ,everyone helped >dum< {rofwl} ,job took twice as long as everyone wanted to lay in the coop i was working in and made a hell of a racket about it ,i think the sun is boiling frankiis brains he ended up in the sin bin again ,his amour is getting the better of him so i gave the girls some peace and quiet and left him in the coop while they had some male free time to sunbathe ,i think spring has sprung for frankii bless him >ch<

delphine is coming out from behind the trees a little more and comes for sweetcorn now when i call them all she put herself to bed again no probs after i put her in the ark to get something to eat and drink so i think we are settling in slowly

Ace, wow Delphine has a wonderful bouffant, you must give me the name of her hairdresser as my little Piccolo could do with a bit more fuff on her topknot.
Your big ladies will get used to determined silkie ways because if Delphine makes her mind up to lay an egg alongside one of the others , say Marilyn, nothing will stop her. I wonder what colour egg she will give you, my silke's eggs vary from white to a light creamy coffee colour and they are always absolutely perfect, never a blemish and spotlessly clean.
My fingers are firmly crossed that the babies will turn out to wear frilly knickers and not boxer shorts x
It will be alright in the end , if its not alright, it isn't the end .

oh Annie this post has made me chuckle i shall try to answer your questions

1 her hairdresser is big al he gave her a big bouffant to protect her head against Dorey bokking her !!

2 determined silkie ways have started ,Delphine went tot bed at 6.30 tonight to get the best spot in the coop.she has decided that Ann-a-lou has the best place in the bedroom which is in the top left corner away from the door and first out for the food

3 she laid today in the dust bath in the Walk-in-Run and would not move for porscha to get in and bokked her and then pippy went for some sweetcorn near her and she also got bokked

i too hope the babies have pink bloomers and not boxers ,although im sure big al will give me access visits to them if they are boxer shorts wearers, he has offered to give me a silkie if they are boys as a swop bless him ,hes so nice but i think there is only room in my coop for the one silkie ,im not sure my nerves will take the palaver she creates ,

make a strange little noise dont they Annie ,not a cluck by any description more a squeak and when she zooms around squeaking they are all on red alert wanting to investigate ,she attracts their attention but she seems to be coming out of her shell a little more and be a bit more daring she uses the water font on the garden and walks tentatively on the grass she picks up her feet really high .

her tail is up now so shes felling a little better but when she gets scared if the big girls help her to understand the pecking order {rofwl} she zooms back to the high nestbox for a while i think its her safety net .

i have had to remember she is only short and lower my feeders and drinkers as i usually have them 2 bricks high to prevent them stooping too much and i have put a little drinker on the shelf with the nestbox and she uses that she eats really well ,she also comes to call when it is sweetcorn time and she is getting there when i rattle the tin to call them into the Walk-in-Run so im hoping shes getting used to us .

i have a couple of photos to post but im very tired today we have had alot of visitors to see mum ,so my diary has been a bit boring ,sorry :oops:

Love it, love it. It's like that 70s fashion for jamming people into phone boxes and minis. Talented little chooks.
