Henny Pennys fly the nest!

When I make decisions
I make them fast and act fast!

The other day I decided that
my garden was just too shabby looking,
and I'm not meaning chic!

I asked a dear friend of mine if she would like to
increase her flock and she willingly said yes!

So now Wendy, Delia, Pearl, Mabel and Olive
have gone to live here...

'PECKingham Palace'

Gorgeous isn't it?!
You should see the rest of 'Sam's' pad,
it's just perfect!

Bye bye henny pennys

Can you believe that these are the chicks we hatched?
See my post about the happy event HERE.

 Even Toby-fat-cat wanted to get in on the action,
yes he has only half a tail!
Everything lives happily together,
bunny, hens, cat and boys!
(and rugby balls if you look closely)

Cochins are a breed that are very much like
Orpingtons but with 'bloomers' on

I'm sure they'll be more than happy,
no more dodging that rugby ball eh girls?!


Sam is a collegue of mine and
whilst chatting one day on the playground
we discovered our shared passion for
hens and sewing.

So more talented then I am,
have a look at her goodies over at her place

I was relieved to know that most of my flock
was going to such a fabby home
(I kept just 2, Sarah and Daisy)
but when Sam gave me this chap in return
I was thrilled!

He won't make a mess and
he won't keep me and the neighbours awake!

He just needs to find a shelf to call home now...

Thank you Sam!

So now, we just have the task
of tidying up the disgrace that I call the garden!

That I think deserves a post of it's own.
Maybe this time next year I will post it hee hee.

Love C. x

I was sad when mr fox ate my ducks, but couldn't believe how much tidier the garden became.We now have a resident hedgehog to eat the slugs. Enjoy the tidy up :)

My garden is always a mess! I love gardening but don't have the time to do it.
Can't wait to see the results :) x

Our hens have a dedicated chicken area & they aren't allowed into the rest of the garden or it would all look like a chicken run!
