Well two of the girls got re-homed recently. These cute little chicks are now growing into lovely little ladies so we took 2 to our grandparents the other week.
My gorgeous Grandad Pete (the Sweetpeas Smashing Super Great Grandad) has recently had a hip op. It hasn't been easy for him getting used to the fact that he can't go skiing down the black runs any more so I thought the chickens would be a great distraction. My Nan Glynn has always been maternal so she can mother them whilst Grandad looks after them :-)
Daisy and Gert as they are now called settled in really well and had a potter around the garden ....
They said hello to the gnomes and pecked around the apple trees ......
Before snuggling up in their new home, grandad even cut some lino for their bedding area, what posh chickens they are lol (it was really to make it easier for him to clean them out but I have never heard of chickens having a nice kitchen floor before :-)). As I left them Grandad had popped out to check them several times and Nan was cutting up little bits of food for them, I think these chickens are going to have a very happy life :-) We are all hoping that Gert doesn't turn into Bert as it is rather hard to tell at this age but we have another girl at home if that happens
We have also recently been to my Nan & Grandads to pick up their old tandem. oohh this has some very happy memories attached to it, we have photos of my parents biking off on this on their wedding day in full wedding gear and I fondly remember my aunties sitting on the front and back seats whilst me and my sister sat on pillows which were tied to the cross bars :-)
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for all your lovely comments which always make me smile :-) xxxx
