Our Newest Recruits to the Funny Farm

 ~
While we were away on our break to Scotland our little Lavender Pekin family expanded all on their own.  Alice and Caldwell became the proud parents of three gorgeous little chicks.  Unfortunately, one died quite unexplicably yesterday but the other two are doing fine.

Mum had them out of the henhouse for the first time yesterday and at just 4 days old was teaching them to scratch in the soil and feed themselves.

While a very proud Dad watched from the sidelines, rushing in when ever anything looked threatening.

They all joined in with the family group, but any Aunty that got too close was told off in no uncertain terms!

Gosh it's nice to be back, I don't know what has been going on with Blogger in my absence but it's taken me all this time to get back to normal on here.  If anyone else is still struggling, to be able to post I had to change to the new Editor.

  1. How gorgeous are they! Sorry to hear that you lost one, but so glad the other two are doing well. It is my one regret that we can't keep chucks here. Love the video.

    It makes me want to raise chicks here, now if only the hens (and my husband) would agree!

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
