{rofwl} i do sort of take in all the unwanteds dont i ,im desperatley trying to think of a way of getting lisa b marilyn to sheffield from up north as im happy to take her so im trying to think of something +f+

my girls have had a great day today lapping up the spring sun and dustbathing ,the baby pigeons wallowed in the sun with the coit door open and little woobbly legs taking even wobblier steps , {rofwl} i decided to rake up a few leaves from the apple tree that had blown into the decking area and settled by the patio doors so brush in hand i tidied them up went to fetch a rubbish bag and OMG i had only turned my back for the few seconds iot took to get the back and the little beggar {rofwl} had kicked every pile into oblivion }hairout{ happily scooching ignorant to my rantings at them and i was so tupid to think that for two seconds i could turn my back on them ,what a dumbo .

pegpuss and i met each other last night and although brief and in the dark holding a torch it was lovely to meet a fellow laner ,and due to her generosity i will now be able to offer more little brown girls a home in march :)

so the donated coop was on the garden and as always thoproughly investigated by all 8 nosey parkers,they were in the nest box quick as a flash in every nook and cranny ,just wait till it has new sisters in there

i will be posting photographs and a little story of sunnys latest meetings she has been such a good girl

} here are the twins at two weeks old

to be truthful sandy i had a coversation with manda regarding this and today everything seems to be hunky dory isabella still reigns top hen and no inkling as to dorey and ann a lous positions they appear to be happy as they are isabella rules softly just the necessary boks no nastiness from her and frankiis girls remain the same augustine top hen then porshca and then rheima but ann a lou bottom of all ranking so who knows what will happen >shrug< coup feels weird to me and i was worried isabella would mourn her longer but no shes fine, marlene was her wing man but hen wise everybody seems ok isabella hasnt looked for hen or clucked for her no exbatt eggs though and only one bantam egg usually i have 2 ex batts and 2/3 banty eggs but maybe this is how its showing im keeping a real close eye on them though and giving high protein just to boost them if theyre happy im happy good luck sandy with the pecking order keep us updated )t' {hug}

had a great day in the garden all warm and sunny ,i did a bit of light leaf raking (back playing up terribly) and the girls did a bit of leaf unraking {rofwl} my mucky mudlark isabella will have to have to have some kind of bath tomorrow she is filthy all her chest feathers are caked in mud as she decided it would be a really good idea to have a dustbath in the leaf mulch >dowhat< she smells horrid i feel sorry for poor dorey and ann-a-lou in the coup with her tonight >ch< heaven only knows why i gave her such a beautiful ladylike name ,she is a muck tub ,

we are making preparations for marilyn joining us an extra feed station and water font so i can seperate her for a feww hours on the first day she arrives and give them chace to puff their chests out wothout killing each other!! }hairout{ im so looking forward to having another noisy girl as skinnie minnie was very vocal we always knew where she was and whilst i was speaking to lisab on the phone today i could hear marilyn in the background chattering away ,no doubt she will change the dynamics in the coup but isabella still maintains top hen atatus and ann-a-lou and dorey are laid back and dont seem to worry about their status ,but hey ho no doubt it will be all handbags at dawn !!

justa copule fo pics of all ny little flock sunbathing
Image

As you know we have had what i thought was a hawk swooping us and it has killed julius dad ,he never came back, so we decided to have a look at a Walk-in-Run made of welded mesh so that the girls can still free range if we arent in the garden with them, as the winter has really taken its toll on my back and ive struggled a bit to be honest, so we called a guy who advertises on flea bay and we have ordered a 4mx4m run fro him which is being delivered on monday and it will attach to the covered coops and the girls will have the freedom they are used to ,they will have all the run of the garden to free range when we are in the garden but when im indoors they will still have plenty of space to dig in etc ,anyway i contacted the guy by phone and ive saved £70 off the usual price and he was a great guy and its a fab bit of kit {gardenlife,biz) so will post when erected .

Mrs bridges has done a great job of rearing the two babies by herself and miss jones and phillip have hatched their egg today and hopefully egg 2 will hatch tomoz


the twins at 3 weeeks old naming competion is still on jack is judging Image

a little one of my ann-a-lou greta she is a lovely hen really mild and friendly she is like my shadow follows me everywhere still bottom of the flock bless her fluffly bloomers ,she doesnt seem to care though and is happy and content and thats all that matters to me
Image
she has been out of the cages since oct 2012 and what a difference it makes to these little girls they are a treat to rehome ,i love em


and this is miss jones and phillip sitting all squashed up in their choccie tin keeping the baby snuggly and warm till we are allowed to see it

its a really solid piece of kit and well made and comes in sections you can upgrade at a reasonable price too he is a lovley guy so helpful and a secret haggler too which always comes in handy i scured a cover at half price too and recommended the lane to him for advertising space ,hope it works our for richard as every spare copper comes in handy doesnt it im really pleased with it we have seen it .it is usually £400 and well worth it as it can be taken down and move with me should i decide )t'
