18th Jan

 Well hello there. Its time for a few chicken photos as that what today was about.
I was awoken at 5.30 am by a sickly sounding crow. Ugh looks like my baby chicks I hatched had a few roosters in there. So I lean out of bed straight to my ipad and advertize free to good home rooster maybe more than one.
Turns out 3 of 6 chicks that I hatched were roosters. I had a feeling one was a rooster, but anyway a lovely couple came and took them of my hands.

 Much to the disgust of this girl
 This is one of the chicks , not a great photo but she is a splash Australorp.
Such a good versatile chicken if you are looking and getting into chickens, they are excellent layers as well.
 Another chick she is a blue Australorp. I have a black one as well but she wasnt impressed about photos today. To busy scratching around in the gardens and to quick for me to get a shot of her.
 Now these girls are beautiful ducks they are Indian runners and if you love duck eggs, these are the breed to get as they are simply the best layers,  they have a pool but for some reason they like my pond they sit in it all day , hence I havnt put fish in there. I tried to put wire on it but they just plonked themselves on top of it.

 A beautiful lily that I purchased not so long ago for the garden. There is always something in bloom around here.
 The girls had a wonderful day today scrounging around the yard.
 Boy do I love dahlias, I think I have mentioned this many a times on this blog. But I dooooo.
 Everywhere I go these girls follow me. Chooks have to be the best pets.
 Snowball is looking a bit of a wreck today, dirt everywhere.
 I love that they pull out weeds and all sorts of goodies from the earth.
 They didnt find these. These are the last of my berries, a beautiful thornless blackberry bush. My freezer is full of logan and rasberries. This is my blackberry bushes first year  so hopefully I get a few.

 My one and only sunflower how gorgeous are these , such a happy looking plant.
I think it self sewed  here from the chicken feed.
 Its amongst my fruit trees
 My girls are certainly laying well at the moment. Some days I get nine eggs, today it was 6.
 Blooming dahlias.
 My new little addition to my bunny clan, this is a broken orange she is just beautiful.
 My shed is devoted to my bunnies, I spend a bit of time down here brushing them cutting nails and cleaning cages Popping them outside in the bunny run to take turns in the sunshine.
 Now onto the next new years resolution on getting fit.
Also de cluttering , well this thing here had to go. it was a fad for the first week but after that I found it extremely boring and hour on this just walking no where was not for me.
I love to walk and be able to look at gardens and birds and flowers and houses and just generally wander around. So thats what Im doing , so this went into the local buy ,swap and sell and thank god for that it was huge and taking up to much room and I want to re decorate this room.
I was also going to follow the latest trend of getting a fit bit {look them up if you dont know what they are} but instead Ive stood my ground Im not a follower and didnt want to buy another piece of rubbish that would end up on the scrap heap. So above is a picture of my fit bit. She just loves a walk  and I like to keep her happy and I can tell how many steps we have done as she is tired and doesnt dig as many holes in my garden.
So there you go. Thats my Sunday.
Enjoy your week everyone xxx


  1. Got to love those chookies. They give you entertainment and food. You seem quite organised at the moment. My friend has a fitbit and she loves it. Its very motivating for her and also, its like facebook and you can have fitbit friends. She joined a 300+ club (lbs to loose i guess) and they motivate and compete with each other. I understand you not getting one because you are self motivated. I like your walking buddy.

    1. Im getting there Lynda I had been sick last week but determined at moment to feel good and fit. I have friend who have the fit bits and I did want one , but Alaska informs me I dont need one as she will keep me fit enough or she is going to trash the yard if I dont walk her day and night. I do like nice walks anyway.The treadmill is impressive but boring for me , just like gym that bores me to lol. I need lovely walks amongst nature , and mowing lawns and lifting chooky food and rabbit food thats my work out. Just need more of it.

  2. Glad to see the dahlias are blooming. It's a good year for them here, enough rain. My large white one always seems to have a little black beetle amongst the petals. The beetle doesn't bother with any of the others.
    Wow. The colour of the gladi from your aunt is just fantastic.
