Nick here again – Frances is incapacitated!
Down here in Watford we’ve been lucky to escape the worst of the flooding, however our garden is still very muddy. Hence when it’s time to feed the chickens, aka Rosie and Cinnamon, drastic measures are called for.
The food goes down very quickly, and has to be kept away from the slugs, who love it.
That’s Rosie – her comb is slightly smaller than Cinnamon’s. We can’t leave them outside unattended as there are cats and foxes about, so we let them have a bit of free-range time when we can.
They are remarkably endearing, and getting much tamer as they approach 1 year old.
And to think they used to look like this…
They grow up so quickly! We get an egg a day from each of them now, so are never short of omelettes, poached eggs, or american pancakes.
Speaking of growing up quickly, look who’s worn out after a morning playing with his chums…
Happy pancake day!
