Look what we found in the garden this weekend, a surprise befitting the Easter Season indeed :: a very proud hen with fifteen little chicks. FIFTEEN! This sweet little black hen has fancied a large brood ever since she started laying, and twice before we've found her sitting on large clutches of eggs in well hidden parts of the garden. But never before have they hatched. This time she did it, cleverly laying her eggs in an unused compost bin, topped up with a few donated eggs from the other hens it seems. She looks so very proud of herself, and rightly so. Clever girl, but really, fifteen.
Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Easter xx
