all in all it has been a poultry inspired weekend.
on saturday afternoon i found myself in that rare position of having a few child free hours. unfortunately, due to my lack of organisation, i spent it all stitching up this poultry effort for a very important forthcoming birthday party. it took several layers of persuasion to get the young man to dress up.
we have been planning on getting a couple of birds for ages now, but every time we started looking at chicken coop requirements, confusion hit in and we never actually begun. so we visited some friends who keep chickens. franc loved the two girls colonel and zinger, and this was the first step in persuading him to wear the outfit. we left our friends, very happy with a couple of books, some homemade pickle, two eggs and the drive to get going. many thanks.
chocolate cake bribary, although i like to think of it more as barganing, was an absolute necessity to get this beautiful picture. it was a great party. happy birthday cai.
we have now cleared a space in the garden for the chickens new home, so watch this space to meet our new egg laying family soon.
