Let's hope she will turn out to be a lovely little hen laying lovely little blue eggs for us....
MOLLY AND HER CHICKS
Is doing fine with her 9 chicks,eating a bit of porridge every morning with her chicks..they love it and can't wait to get out of the hutch to get at it,she starts clucking as I am walking up the backyard.The chicks are 2 weeks old today,I can't believe how much they have grown in a week and a half already,they can jump and fly really high now.

Paul bought me my very own 2 stroke petrol strimmer for an easter present! bless him, its brilliant,strimmed the nature area in no time.
We packed up early Wednesday so we could have a look around Clitheroe auctions at the fur and feather auction,and came home with one broodie Silkie Hen and 10 tiny chicks,un beknown to Paul at the time, he was drinking his brew sat on one of the gates and I told him sheepishly "oh by the way Paul I just bid for that box of chickens"! I have named her MOLLY,she just looks like a MOLLY when I look at her,she is sooo calm and placid very friendly let's you pick her up and pick the chicks up.....So now Paul has to pull everything back a week and start making the run now,which we have been at the allotment for 9 hrs today sorting it all out.I planted Potatoes,Peas,and Parsnips,and made the most ace Pea twig frame ever! took ages and ages as every last piece of it had to be found in the woods and stipped and chopped and stuck in the ground and tied.
Potatoes went in....Maris Piper's 2nd Earlies
Then the Peas Kalvedon Wonder...The Parnips went in too then the Chicken run was starting to take shape...
