Just a little peek until it arrives at it's destination.
Around the homestead, the "new" chickens are no longer new, but part of the flock. Here they are dustbathing together, but since I took this photo, the new ones have been coaxed into sleeping in the big roost. They were pretty nervous to start, and no wonder, with that big orange monster bearing down on them from above, and pecking madly. All's well now, though, and spangly Lola now sleeps
happily under that monster's wing.
I call this pair my yin yang cats....that's mother Molly on the right, and her "baby", Velvet Brown who's around 7or 8. These two ended up staying with me when I was fostering cats for an animal rescue group. They'd come out of a very nasty situation, and I couldn't bear for them to go through the adoption process, they were so terrified of people, so I kept them. Even after nearly 4 years with me, they're still quite timid, and will come to me occassionally for an ear scratch, but mostly keep to themselves. I'm more than happy to give them a safe haven and let them live out their days peacefully.
And to finish, here's the puppy herself, helping me in the garden. As you can see, she's quite the lady.
Have a good week everyone.
