Back at the Ranch!

Hi there, well I’m back, where did the time go, I hear you cry, well maybe not, but I certainly am, it seems to have flown by, no sooner had we arrived in the UK, that I wished we would be there for longer, it was and still is a great summer. My 12 year old son had a great time, all the sights of London, and time with his sister and cousins.

Ofcourse apon return the first thing we both did was to say hello to the hens, I do believe they knew it was us who had returned, they all seem fine, although Nancy looks very much in the later stages of moulting, and it seems the chicken sitter has done a fine job, Betty looks as if she has fully grown while we’ve been gone, which in turn has made Manuella the Minorcan, look as if she has shrunk. I shall look for eggs tomorrow, looking forward to fresh healthy eggs again.

It seems as though it has been very wet here, the back garden as turned to mud, although the sun has just poked it’s face out, here’s hoping for a few days sunshine for our return.

  1. It’s incredibly muddy here too, in Martinborough, New Zealand. But it’s winter so that’s expected. Our poor hens haven’t had a good dust bath in some time. But thankfully our geriatric rooster has been keeping the peace among the hens (who were fighting before he came), so all is well.

  2. Glad you had a good time and your chickens were well taken care of while you were gone. j:)
