Last of the hatchlings
Poor Catherine the goose has become so broody that we let her sit on Zita's egg. Neither goose has laid since Wednesday.
So the egg count -
Chickens - 39
Ducks - 22
Geese - 2
At the moment, through selling the eggs, the birds are almost self-supporting. I have some standing orders and people who always come to me as and when they need eggs, and a neighbour sells them to her friends at the golf club for me.
Ja-ja has been running around, like the mad duck he is, chasing Pidgeons. They only fly a little way off but it drives him crazy and he hurtles around the field chasing them off.
The sheep are shedding their coats, I have quite a large ball of fluff now that I will have to something with.
