meet my girls
I thought it is a good time to introduce *my girls* - two have come to meet me at the gate. I have about 7 girls at the moment * all named ~ Betty & Wilma ~ Florrie, Jean & Elsie ~ Pearl & Ruby. I don't feed them chemicals - they live on a diet of kitchen scraps, grain & the odd grub or two from my garden. I have even been known to make them hot porridge during winter time, with a dash of garlic. It warms them and they produce eggs even when it's cold. They delight in the piles of weeds that I throw them each weekend. Scratching and clucking as they search for worms. I could sit and watch them for hours & hours.
I have decorated their home with a shabby vintage chandelier which doesn't actually work but looks delightful just the same ~ They reward me with yummy eggs every day * eggs where the yolk is really, really yellow & the white is nice and firm AND they actually taste like eggs !!
