What do you do on a wet Monday?
You haven't seen much of my lovely London Ladies lately have you - so for those of you who enjoy my chickens - and bantams in particular - here are some photos that I took today of them - in the rain. Something to do on a wet Monday.
You rarely see all three girls together these days and Dilly on the left and Freckles on the right, spend most of their time sitting indoors being broody and grumpy.
They make really weird growling type noises when they are in this mood and poor old Pumpkin gets the heave ho in no uncertain terms.
She shrieks at the top of her voice - calling me. I shout out "shush", or "quiet", from the conservatory window, but she doesn't be quiet until I go in and sort out the pecking order. Pat often comes to find me to tell me that Pumpkin is shouting for me !
I go out there to shuffle the girls around so that Pumpkin gets a look in - on this occassion it is Freckles that is 'put out' by my unwelcome interference.
Freckles get sorted and Dilly complains
Peace and harmony
