I've had quite a sad year because lots of the chickens died. So here's a record of them:
Cath, was a lovely copper Maran that died in about feb.
Spelt, was an ISA brown that died in apr
one of the chicks died in jul
wheat died in sep
buffer died in jun
fudge died in aug
That's all the chickens that died last year, so lets just have moment to remember them.
We've had our moment to remember them. There have been happy bits of this year as well, like all the chicks we've had.
There's been Tablet's chicks and bluey's chicks, Roni, Pancake, Bannock, Jet Jade, Copper Crystal and Forget-me-not.
I hope I get more chicks in 2010. But who knows!

Good luck for 2010! And bye bye to 2009!!!


Merry Christmas!!

Little Floss is fine and cheeping with her sisters. Do you know what I'm calling the others? Well Sheeba and Doodle. Little Espresso's hatching. No signs for little Bryony. She hasn't got any pips in her egg yet....


New arrival

A chick hatched last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guss what kind? A......."salamon faverolle"
Woooooooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


Welcome back Violet

Yesterday I decided that I would throw Violet's eggs down the bank......Lucy and Gerry agreed, when she was off her eggs I sneaked up to her nest (with a tub to carry them in)
I picked an egg up and put it in and again and again and again and again and again then suddenly I broke an egg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...................................................It was soooooooooooooo stinky!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ran as fast as my legs would carry me, and in a min i got to the burn and they went in!
Violet ran to her nest but no eggs to be seen.............She looked and looked but no eggs. She fineally went in to the garden and setteled down.
The arucana eggs have just been sent, so two more days till they come.


Not looking good with the broodys

Tablet's chicks are over jue so prob not hatch. It's not looking good with the hatching eggs too, 6 have but the others have not come yet.............

We've got 3 new broodys (in the nest boxes) Carib Coco and Barley.


Bad news and good news

Sadly we found out today that Violet's chicks won't hatch. But we bought some eggs instead.
I got Friesians and Lucy, Gerry and Finlay got lavender araucanas. One of Violet's eggs had smashed.

3 weeks ago yesterday Violet went missing. I'm so upset that i cant see Violet much for 3 weeks and two days. I wonder If Violet will come off her eggs in the next two days.

We are building a hen house made out of old pallets. We have done the door the back the sides and run. All we need to do is the door hook, the bedding and the roof.


Lots of chicken pics

Violet's chicks will hatch very soon, maybe on Sunday.

These are the whitelos up their tree. They snuggle up together every single night!

Here is Marri on her hatchday.

This is Kujo and Fudge in love..........

Here is a chicken logo that Gerry drew. He is called Chickeny.


My first blue egg of 2009 and Marri's hatchday

Yesterday it was Marri's 4'th hatchday, she had a porridge cake.

Today I went to check for eggs, and a found a blue egg, layed by Quenella.


Broody pics

Here are some photos of the broodys. Hope you like them.

The second one and the last one are of the hen that went missing. Lucy and Gerry followed her to the top of a hill. I'm can't wait till the chicks hatch. My faverolles are going to have pasta names. I might have got cochins but Lucy and Gerry said no. I wanted Jersey Giants too


All is well with the broodys

The broodys are fine 2 days ago we put eggs under the isa. here is a song about her:

a broody isa...........

Gerry said to Lucy that broodyness was bred out of them,

She's a hen....................................,
oh love her la le lo na,

she is danceing with her chicks,
oh she is danceing with her chicks,
she is danceing with her chicks,
she is danceing with her chicks........................................................!


An other nest of eggs, hatching eggs and a broody Isa

Lots of thing have happened in the world of chickens today.

First of all when we went out to elgin and got some pellets. But just as we got to the top of the drive I saw a hen! She was laying an egg (about the 20th). When we got home it was fine a few hours later Gerry found the broody she is in a den thing with dead trees over her as the frame and sticks as the roof. I found a better place but I'm not moveing her.

Soon after tea (dinner) (supper) We bought eggs for her to mum. I got salmon faverolles Gerry got cream legbars and Lucy got anconas (like leghorns)


She came back!

The hen came back. She has gone missing again. We are thinking that she is broody. She'll have chicks!


The case of the missing chicken

One of my hens has gone missing. I don't know how to spell her name. Lucy + I looked all over the garden. I hope She comes back soon.


Nest of eggs

I found a nest of eggs. I think they are Mairi eggs. Some are chocolate brown and some are light brown but they are all spotty and it is the spots that I recognise from other Mairi eggs.

So, that means she's been laying eggs of all shades of brown.

I was following an Isa Brown down a bank in the garden where there's lots of nettles and raspberry bushes and there were Rhode Island Reds stratching about and then I saw the nest of eggs.

I ran in to the house and told Lucy and Gerry that I saw a nest of eggs (I didn't know that they were Mairi eggs then). I went out again and realised that they were Mairi eggs.

Lucy came out to see them. There were about a dozen. Lucy took all except one inside, so Mairi had more space to lay. We will start checking there every day.

I was looking for some Quenella eggs because she's laying somewhere else that we don't know about.

I will look tomorrow for them. You usually find them when you're not looking for them.

I have found eggs down that bank before laid by a Rhode Island Red. Last year I found lots of Quenella eggs and there's still a few bits of shell left.

I'm hoping that I find the Quenella eggs tomorrow. Fingers crossed I will find them.

Pic of happy Cath

This is Cath a few weeks ago. Just looking at her makes me sad. i think that she might get put down tomorrow. It is very sad that she is ill. but she is better now!

OH NO NO NO NOOOOO poor Cath might be put to sleep...boooooo hoooooo

POOR Cath might be put down. Hope she dosn't. But I have had ill chickens before like buffy my buff sussex. which coud not see in one eye and later she coud not see at all. So Gerry had to put her down. And her brother. which had the same thing as her. And cusdard my cream crested legbar. they are greay and brown and she was white! She just died in the night. I think that her hart just stoped. And her sister Quail which had the same thing as cath. and some cocks who were put down for us to eat. And they were nasty ones. Kujo is a very nice cock. and last a white leghorn called: Yoghurt. Which had the same thing.
I hope she gets bet- oh she eat some food today.
I hope she gets better soon.


Oh dear an ill chook.............boo hoo

One of my hens is ill. Her name is Cath and she is a blue maran.
Her twin sisters Bluey and Kim and her younger half sister Fenella, and her younger cousin Splashy and her cousin Angel Wings and her half brother Kujo are not bothered about her.

My first chocolate brown egg of 2009! And an doubble yolker

One of my Copper blue marans or Splash marans has laid a EGG!! I will probably get one today aswell. It was not the darkest but it was a chocolate brown egg!
