Getting Wiser

It's been a couple of months since I last gave you a visual poultry update, and they are now a little older and occasionally wiser, so shall we check in with the little munchkins? This is Pippin one of the Light Sussex pullets. Despite their size, I suspect we are still a couple of months off before either bird starts to lay as they are slow to mature.

Largo (Australorp) and Harriett (ISA Brown) decided today was the day they were going to dig to freedom. With the recent heat wave, the ground is hard baked, I don't think the girls are going to get very far.

Ever prepared Pippin strikes a pose.

Unlike Pippin, poor old Mullet who is never quite with it. Mullet is a filth wizard, friend to only the pig.

Finally my noisy Gold Laced Wyandotte, Churchill. Churchill isn't much bigger than Mullet but getting prettier with each passing day. Just as well really as she is an aloof bird.
