'pretending to just be looking out to sea doesn't fool her one bit'


Howling with laughter......

Do you just have girls now

xxxxxxx

Yup just 4 girls, of which 2 are very elderly, but on the look out for more  ;)

My lone slightly grumpy girl will go broody at some point (and I'm away for a bit end April) so in May I'm looking for hatching eggs or 8 week chicks.  I'd be interested to hear if you find a wonderful place from where to buy or if you might adopt a boy we've hatched.  Reading is an hour's drive. Will be Pekins.  xxxx
Three Pekins. Chocolate, Lavender and White.  Chocky, Lavvy and Whitey.

Try this lady Nerdle.  She gave me Foggie and Alphie and has lots of Pekins as well.  You can buy POL or sexed growers, that avoid any problems with unwanted boys.

... And talking of which.  I picked up 2 very small, but very pretty birds from another lady very close to me, who has just started breeding again and was desperate to home a lovely little lad she had hatched and was very fond of.  He came with a friend, who has a question mark on him at present, but might well also be male. 

The diaries have at least 1 new keeper and perhaps 2, so they are settling in and having a read, just so they can see what big clawed shoes they have to step into  ;)
