Meet Mabel and Gertrude!
« on: February 28, 2008, 19:06 »
Hi guys!

We went and collected our two new chooks late this afternoon. One who we've named Mabel, and one who we've called Gertrude  :D

Not sure which is which, but one is a Blue Haze and one a Speckledy Maran (i think Mabel's the BH, Gertrude the SM, but i'm more or less guessing  :oops:   :lol:  )

We got them out of the crate in the run, and clipped their wings. Then let them have a bit of a scratch around before putting them in the hen house for the night. Chooky was already nice and comfy in her nest box when we got back, so they haven't been properly introduced yet - just bunged in together  :lol:

Anyway... here are the pics...


Mabel



Gertrude

Will get some better pics tomorrow in the light. We took some of the girls scratching around in the henhouse with Chooky looking on slightly bewildered... probably thinking "intruders! get out of my house!"  :lol:  but they won't upload to my photobucket for some reason... will keep trying though  :wink:

So there you go! Mabel and Gertrude have joined Chooky!  :D

Trying to live the good life.. getting there slooooowly...
