|Andrea being given the once over by Freddy, |
on the day she first arrived
|Snowy, my oldest hen,|
a Light Sussex
|Rusty and Clementine (Clemmy),|
who I rehomed for a friend back in May
|Outside in one of their runs back in the summer - |
my 7th bird Cinders is the grey one
|Out to play in the big garden|
Then there's the ducks. Or rather, the duck. Sadly my poor Daffy got taken by a fox a few weeks ago, after she'd been really naughty and refused to come in that night - there's not a lot you can do if a duck decides to stay on the water as you can't chase it in! We also lost Donaldina to natural causes back in the summer. So we just have Freckles left who still lays the occasional egg although her laying days are coming to an end. Here are all three enjoying the sunshine with some other water birds and their babies - can you guess what they are?!!

as a juvenile moorhen steals her grub!
