My dear Rooster died and for the next few days, my hens wouldn't even come out of the hen house, so something needed to be done. A local farmer friend of John's so kindly gave me a young 12 week old Rhode Island Red and he settled in very quickly and now I have a happy hen house again. He made a miserable effort of crowing at first, but now look at him! Crowing superbly too. In just a month he is the proud king of the roost. He has no name though. Any ideas please?
Before I got my new Rooster, my cousin who was visiting, took pity upon me and placed a ceramic rooster in the chookshed as a joke. I moved such to the back verandah. Thanks Jeff and Joan!
My other great love is any lamb I have had to bottlefeed.
Midge has just had another set of twins and because Midge runs to me (for food) when I go walking, the little twins followed yesterday and didn't seem to worry about me being so close. Suppose as long as they were with Mum, they felt safe. Such beautiful lambs, don't you think?
Midge has often been featured in previous Blogs. She stands still to have a body massage, the antics of which are very funny, Of course, she delights in a slice of bread or a biscuit.
There have been some beautiful sunsets over The Rock Hill this month.
Is that The Rock becoming a volcano? Looks like it, doesn't it?
