Real Easter Eggs.....

I have just been out
in to the 'Night Garden'
(Not sure how Upsy-Daisy does it, I was a bit lot scared,
but then I am a wuss!)

To pay a little visit to Wendy.

What a bossy little madam she is!

Little does she know
but she has been sitting tight on what
she thinks are eggs for a couple of days.

Don't tell her but they were only pebbles!

I have been out and swopped
them over for the real deal just now.

Aren't they just the cutest little things you ever did see?

Sorry, didn't mean to put you off your meal ha ha
(oops, there goes my naughty sense of humour again!)

But what you see before you
hopefully in just 3 weeks time,
will be fluffy little teeny tiny chicks.

Watch this space........

Love Claire. xxx

Oooh,can't wait to see the little fluffy chickadies!Wish I had some chickens.We hear the neighbours cockeral crowing every morning,it usually sets Bella off barking!
Regarding the crochet squares,I found it MUCH easier when I swopped to a thicker wool.

Bellaboo :0)

Helloo..I've just discovered your blog!
I'm thinking of buying a couple of hens later this year..although I'm not too sure yet as my sister runs a rare breeds poultry business and I've had too many run-ins with nasty cockerals!!

I think Upsy Daisy manages it because they're all scarey characters so what would scare them! My friends wee boy loves In the night garden but it just freaks me out LOL

Aww fluffy baby chicks, I'll look forward to seeing them :)

but no cockerel to make chicks,I'll be watching with anticipation.

How exciting - I have a hen that goes broody on a regular basis and am very tempted to get some eggs for her to sit on. Can't wait to see some fluffy chick pics on your blog!

Good Morning Claire Sweetie...
I am your newest follower. I came from Kissed by An Angel. She gave you an award today. How precious, and I can see why. You have a beautiful blog sweetie.

Wendy is just adorable. Her coloring is magnificent. She looks so proud sitting there on her pebbles. Woops, I forgot, that is a secret, we aren't supposed to tell her. I can't wait to see her little babies. So fluffy and yellow and sweet. Don't forget to post them for us.

Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
