It’s been pretty cold down here in good old blighty and when the sun came out to play so did the chooks and their mates!
I know some of my gorgeous blogging family have been missing seeing them, especially laura rittenhouse so I got as many piccies as I could today. I even managed to snap a yellow tit, which I promised to show seasongirl.
But my fave has got to be a snap of the chooks best mate, our resident blackbird. She sneaks into their coop every day to grab some munchies!
Have a butchers!
what do you want!
is this my best side?
three in a row!
mrs black bird creeps in!
she’s made it
I was chuffed to bits when I got my mitts on this beautiful Oil painting “Folksy Chicken” by Karin Naylor. She is an amazing self-taught artist, painting with vibrant colours for an impressionistic style.
I won it in a giveaway at her blog rosemary lavander and thyme and unless you count a carton of grapefruit juice I’ve never won anything before! If you haven’t come across this awesome blog before you should hop on over now!
Meanwhile, down at littlepoppits we woke up to a blanket of snow. We don’t get much of the stuff here so before school the kids had to have a snowball fight! The chooks were not impressed and hid behind the trees, but the kids loved it!
Help my chooks are freezing their feathers off!
I’m worried that they will be little blocks of ice in their coop! they’ve gotton extra hay n mega extra corn outta me and even got me thinking about heating! ( I know mad huh!)
Those cute little tap tapits at the door are getting kinda hard to ignore, and with talk of another big freeze here in good old blighty spreading what will become of my poor chooks!
As we speak I am thinking about crocheting them some jumpers- Nooooooo!
Reckon they could be spending christmas in our pad, but then my whole family will know for certain I am bonkers, what to do? and anyways how do I get the chooks to leave after!!?!
