We have taken advantage of the weather today and mostly been outside. Everyone is tired now. The grubs, the puppy, and even the chickens who got to have a practice at being proper free rangers. They are now all lying on the floor of their coop looking worn out.
Harry is definitely trying to go broody. I caught her in the nest box half a dozen times today. Once pecking at an RIR and once sitting on two other RIR’s while they tried to lay. She then went and stood by the run of the kids fluffing her feathers up and trying to beck peck them (the brahmas got a bit scared and stayed in the coop – must take some pictures of these guys the boy brahma is so gangly and they are so lovely) the older kids just pecked back at her till she flounced off on disgust at the youth of today. 100 flowers potted up into tubs, platers and baskets. Shallots, beetroot, chinese raddish, more salad, globe raddish, chantaney carrots, and purple dwarf beans in. Chelsea buns made and devoured, and i’ve put my name on the waiting list for an allotment.
