Finally, a bit of sunshine and all is right with the world! The last few days have been so cold, grey and overcast. The birds are singing their little socks off as they rush around gathering twigs and collecting moss from our shed roof to line their nest with.
On the subject of birds, we are the proud owners of 6 hens and a very handsome cockerel named Marmaduke. We have had them a month now and they have settled in well and are laying the most gorgeous yellow yoked eggs imaginable. They were a little pasty (as the pictures show) when they arrived but they are flourishing now. We collected 6 beautiful brown and white eggs this morning alone. The girls are called Martha, Mabel, Matilda, Madeline, Mary and Meredith......soooo sweet don't you think?
Marmaduke before and after!
Gorgeous yummy golden yolked eggs for breakfast...what could be better.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend too.
