We have 20 hens and Red the cockerel. We have a few older ones who no longer lay, like the big fluffy thing we call Gloria and snowy who is big and white, and some that go on forever like our favourite Henny Penny, one of our first game hens.

We have a group of black ones, who were first called the Pom-poms. Some lovely Red ones all like Hoppetty who escaped the fox last year. We have those known as The Ferrils who are shy and this year we have 11 chicks who are still free range as they have learned to fly over the enclosure fence!

They give us about 8 or 9 eggs a day. We are happy with that and we sell what we don’t consume at the gate. £2 a doz.

We can sell veg if we have any spare ie cucumbers 40p. Rocket 20p. Lettuce £1.

Our toms are still green but doing well.

We have soft fruit in the freezer.

Original Crochet Designs. Ramblings and Satire about Crochet. I have been hesitant to create a blog as personally I don’t know if it is for me or not. It is the obvious next step for someone who designs to have one, but not everything is sunshine and rainbows. I will see how it goes and if I find anyone raining on my parade (due to this public platform), then I guess I will cut and run. This blog is for my crochet and so for those ‘Storm clouds’ who hover in the background waiting to pounce, I say go wreck your havoc on someone else for a change! What you won’t find here is perfect Grammar and Spelling. So if you happen to be a Grammar and Spelling Freak, then move along. And if you happen to enjoy my post, please give it a like and follow my blog. Stalkers are welcome. Enjoy reading about crochet! It is all RELATIVE!
