Funny little girls

Ever since DH let the Girls "help" while digging,  they've rushed over to him every time he goes into their pen.  He often can't move without risking treading on an Expectant Hen.

We rearranged the netting the other day. Now that the grass is growing we wanted to give them a fresh piece and rest another piece.   Poor DH had to move hens every time he was about to put his foot down to press a post into place.

On a separate note,  Roobarb - who up till recently was the least approachable of my Girls - has become obsessed with me.  Every time I go anywhere near her, she starts quivering and then crouches.    SHe won't let me go without me stroking her back, or tickling her neck.

And finally, a couple of snaps...


  1. Gosh I hope our chickens love us! We're picking them up Sunday. You inspire me!

  2. That's so exciting - I bet you won't be able to sleep tonight! You've got so much to look forward to - flighty girls, wondering if you'll EVER be able to pick them up, whether they are EVER going to start laying... then comes the crouching.... and then the first egg, one of the best moments ever! Looking forward to hearing how you get on - start a blog about it as I'd love to hear how you get on in the US.
