Gloria’s Stash Discovered

Hi there keepers, well it’s a strange week, firstly Nellie’s been very unwell, close to going to the big field in the sky, I fear that it was my fault, I accidently fed the girls some mouldy feed, it’s must of been only a few bits, but that’s clearly all it takes, Daphne has also been slightly under the weather, but no where near as bad as poor Nellie.

Then to compound matters, it turns out that Dorothy isn’t a girl, she is actually a Donovan, so obviously a rooster now when you look at her, but again as was with the case, with Maria the Minorca, who turned out to be Manuel,  as some of you may remember, Dorothy or Donovan is of a breed ( Light Sussex), that wwe only have the one of, so nothing to compere with, until I looked on the international worldwide web (Googled it), quite clearly a rooster we have.

What first bought this fact to my attention was that Dorothy seemed to be trying to mount poor Nellie who did not have the strength to fight him off,due to her food poisoning.

Some of this is now history, however the good news is I found Gloria’s nest, just on the other side of the neighbours fence, in a corner of over grown weeds, I love finding the nest full of eggs, 15 in total, and all in good order, it was in a nice cool spot. Good old reliable Gloria.
