Bella is doing well. We have had her four weeks now. She enjoys being out free ranging with the other two girls but still is cautious about joining them in the run. If Hamble is on a perch or laying in a nest box, Bella will go out into the run but if Hamble is on the run floor Bella hides in the coop. Its all getting better slowly. Bella is quite a character. She is already taller than the others and her feet are huge. She honks rather than clucks - think she is half goose :-D

She is very pretty. I love the markings on her feathers. It is good to hear she is settling in.

Thanks Amber, personally I think she is at the chicken equivalent of the ugly duckling stage but she will blossom like my other Barnevelder I'm sure. +f+

Finally took care of lovely Florence's last egg. Wanted to try to preserve it somehow. Carefully blew out the contents and cleaned out the shell. Worked really well. Scrambled the contents and Tom and I shared it. Gorgeous as always. Here's to you Flo Flo. X

Matilda is a Speckled Sussex. She is quite small although her sister (Florence) was much bigger.

Thanks for lovely comments.
