A together flock

Blog posts have been a bit thin on the ground lately. It’s been a combination of lots of work and family stuff going on and not much happening in the chicken run.

No news from the chicken run is actually a good thing and I just haven’t had much time to take photographs but to prove that the girls are all okay here are a couple of group photos that I took this morning.

The girls perch together

Combs are getting redder

The flock is so together. I look out of the window and often see the whole group in one spot then in another spot. They do everything together. They are a really close flock which is so lovely to see.

It’s also been very cold and frosty but the girls seem to be managing it okay. The moulting has slowed to me picking up just a few feathers a day and their combs seem to be getting redder.

I do believe this is the happiest and most harmonious flock I have had yet. I would love to get more little girls when the better weather arrives but it will risk rocking their world a little.

    Speckles with her chicks – soooo sweet!! 🙂 xx

    • Speckles is still firmly in mother hen role with the little girls. She is often surrounded by them and looking at them like she is in the bottom photo. Cinnamon is never far from her and if Speckles is on top of the little shelter Cinnamon will always follow her up there. Cinnamon always roosts under Speckles wing. They are more like mum and chick than any real mum and chick would be after all this time. xx

    All so peaceful – just what you need, after the dramas of the latter part of 2017!
