Not much time for blogging lately....

I have been way too busy being a broody 'mum'!

These little cuties arrived a couple of hours ago and have some brothers and sisters waiting in the wings to appear.

Seriously though chicken keeping can be totally addictive. I have a small flock of 12 - 10 hens and 2 roosters and love every one of them and their individual personalities. My hatching eggs at present have come from a local poultry auction plus a few off a friend with chickens. I have used her incubator for this recent hatch and I have purchased my own and I have also 'crafted' one from 'stuff' around the home to see if I can use it successfully as a challenge to myself.

The only crafting I am doing other than rearing chicks is finishing off a granny square blanket - photos to appear very soon.
