It snowed last night and it was still on the ground this morning when I let the hens out of their house. But they stopped at the doorway and wouldn't step a foot onto it! So funny. We couldn't even tempt them out with some suspended cabbage leaves or some wheat seeds! Chicken chickens!
We had two eggs today! One is a bit speckledy and matt whilst the other one is white and a bit shiny, the same as the previous eggs. We're still not sure who our new layer is - but I did spot a Scots Dumpy feather in the nest box?!
We've decided on names for our two Orpingtons. We're naming them after my Mum - Rosie and her sister (my Aunt) - Didee. Mostly because they're big, they waddle slowly, they're grey and they're always together.
|And this is ROSIE|
|I'd like to introduce you to DIDEE|
The Scots Dumpy got onto the perch herself tonight - Yay for progress! I had to put the others on, and both the Orpingtons jumped off and need replacing. Naughty wee things.
