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.


Garndening with the chickens

Lucy and I were outside watching Gerry make a flower bed.
And The ISA brown hens came!!

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!
It had the goldentst yolk. Lucy dropped it on the porch floor.

The double yolker was either a Brick, which is a Rhode island red or an Isa brown.
bye sorcha x
