Just thought I would do an update on the chicks… 4 out of the 6 eggs hatched, there was nothing in the other 2 eggs, I can only guess that they were not fertile.
Here is a picture of our 4 cute little babies and Brenda, their mum.
They are just lovely and it is a pleasure to have them around… my 2 teenagers have been spending rather a lot of time just sitting watching them 🙂
Just look what I found this morning when I went to check on Brenda Pekin 🙂
In fact I was excited that much that I took a half days holiday from my work just to be at home… just incase I missed aything 🙂
When I got home at lunchtime I went out and checked Brenda and she now has 2 chicks hatched with one egg just pipped and 2 still waiting to do something.
I shall report back later on this evening…
Mother Hen over and out! LOL
p.s. nearly forgot… they are Lemon Cuckoo Pekin Bantams 🙂
Today, I bought a brand new bag of IAMS cat buiscuit…
It was left on the kitchen table waiting to be put away into the animal food cupboard…
Take one very sly and sleekit birman cat….
Who sneaks into the kitchen when nobody is looking…. jumps up onto the kitchen table and proceeds ……….. to pick
and shred the bag open with his claws…..
Until he finally reaches the tiny little brown nuggets that he craves so much!
Why do cats feel the need to do this ?!?!
This is Brenda, our broody Partridge Pekin Bantam and she is sitting on 6 lemon cuckoo pekin bantam eggs that I purchased off ebay…
The exciting news is….. they are due to hatch in the next 3 days (all going well and fingers crossed)
I hope to report good news in due course
The potatoes are coming along great in the raised bed and containers…
My OH has been helping out by balancing on the edges of the raised beds earthing them up
There is nothing better than the taste of home grown potatoes… roll on late summer 🙂
The tomato plants are comng along nicely, this is what they looked like 3 weeks ago…
This is what they look like now…. quite impressive that in just 20 days they have doubled in size!
Yesterday we potted up our tomato plants….
6 of them on the worktop and 2 on the floor…..
Today I went in to water them, turned around to water the 2 on the floor and saw this …
What on earth was all that yellow and black stuff, I thought…?!?
Went into the house to get my camer and my son (as backup) 🙂
Asked him to take the plant and pot outside, he moved the pot a little and they started to scarper…
Does anyone know what kind of spiders they are??
