|twin calves born recently - now out in the field with their mum|
Thursday, we only had Simon here, and it was D day for the 3 bantam cockerels, and our HUGE Cotswold Legbar Cockerel - they'd all got rather aggressive and attacked us when we went into their runs - so they had to go...We took them to the market at Kempsford - hoping to get a few pounds for them. Unfortunately, not so - we got 20p each for the beautiful Bantam Cockerels, and £2 each for the other two....! We made a loss overall, as we came home with 4 new laying hens - Lahmans - who had already laid 3 x eggs at the sale!!
This week we're frantically tidying up for Daisy my niece's wedding at the weekend Potting up violas & pansies for the church, and strimming and tidying everywhere.
Ben & William made us a wonderful Hay Rack on Monday, out of old pallets - with the weather forecast getting worse by the day - we will need it before long i reckon! Monday afternoon, we had a visit from 3 children at Paternoster School - it's their second week's visit, and they thoroughly enjoyed going for a walk and collecting 'hedge row' fruit, and helping to pick tomatoes to make Tomato Marmalade for the wedding breakfast! Both John and Helen were very helpful with the children - it's great to see our students working alongside other children with Special Needs.
