Six New Sisters

We'd had a great day already, a fun Spanish lesson, learning about how Easter is celebrated in Spain,
and playing a Spanish version of 'Grandma went to market'.

When we got home, I was a little disappointed that there was no sign of tea, but Geoff had made other plans. First a chippy picnic at Wombwell woods.

And then as the sun went down, we collected six point of lay pullets.

One of the girls!

Snuggling like sisters do! As my three girls love to say.

Chickens safely tucked up and hopefully fox-proof.
Can't wait for our first eggs.

Friday 31st March -Chicken Update.
Last night the fox came and had a really good attempt at getting the chickens. We are going to keep them inside today and maybe move them to a shed.

If you have any good fox proofing tips, we'd really love to hear them, many thanks.


  1. Looks like a marvelous day!

  2. That was quite a day. Hope you get lots of eggs!

  3. I would love to have chickens! I'm pretty sure the bobcats and mountain lions would love it if I had chickens also....

  4. My hubs would love to have chickens. I would love to have the eggs....but not the mess and hassle of keeping and caring for them. Two dogs, a rabbit and the hubs seems like plenty of animal life for me! :)

  5. Thank you for lovely comments. We are looking forward to fresh eggs soon!

  6. What a Special day...

    The chickens look So Sweet all Snuggled up next to each other ...

    Great post for the letter "S"!

    Thanks for linking.


  7. Your own chickens how great is that! I hope the fox doesn't ever succeed!
