Yesterday I set off to collect our new hens from William over in Cloughey. Daylight reveals that we have 1 Welsummer cockerel, 2 Welsummer hens, 2 Light Sussex, 2 black bantams, 1 goldeny bantamy thing, and a mystery grey hen. They are living in the new polytunnel for as long as it takes to turn over the ground, and then we’ll introduce them to the existing flock.

Any ideas? She’s not an Araucana, and is as big as as Welsummer.

A tiny goldeny hen – but what am I?

A hard frost  last night, and an amazing sunrise over the mountains.

A bare looking growing field – not for too long…
