Thanks very much Sara and good luck with your new chicks! I will be checking the updates regularly!

Not much news from me except to say that;
1.)The first egg can be expected any day now!
2.)I moved the two big water containers to near the door, under a shade to decrease the dirt that fell into them.
3.)Conan doesn’t tend to eat her dry food, so I mix water in it like so;


Mmmmmm, appetising!

My media of the day;







Until tomorrow!
