Good Morning Bloggers!
Welcome to my new follower, thank you and my other blog friends for stopping by and commenting, it really does mean a lot to me X
First of all apologies for no card this morning, the card I have scheduled is my DT post for Emergency Crafters, but until they launch the challenge I can't post it...so I may be back later today. Instead, as promised a few more photos of our hens.
Last week I introduced our two new chickies, Penny a Buff Orpington and Lacey, a Speckledy. At the moment they are being kept in the 'nursery' pen so that our other girls Cara and Bella can visit them and they have been free ranging separately. Normally by now we would have snuck them in the main coop at night and hopefully all would be hunky dory, but Penny is only 15 weeks old and still young and placid. As we are planning to build a new coop and run soon (hopefully next weekend - please sun, shine!) we want to wait and put them in together - a new 'house' will be confusing to the older girls as well then and there should be less trouble, hens are such peculiar creatures!
Yesterday was the first day that we let them free range together - I got a tiny bit of crafting, mostly designs done in our summer house/craft barn(!) but that's all. Penny and Lacey wanted lots of extended cuddles...so that was our day sorted, oh well at least a lovely hot, sunny day was a good time to spend in the garden!
So here are some photos and if I don't see you on here later, I'll be back tomorrow. Have a great day all and hope the sun is shining where you are!
In between more hen watching today, we are off to Bristol to meet some friends who now live in South Africa and are back visiting,so doesn't look like much craft time again!

|Having lost our two older hens this year and last, Cara at 18 months is Queen of the roost now, she decided to take a bath in a plant pot yesterday. Lacey was intrigued and tried to copy her - on concrete!|
