    Are they ex-bats? On a couple of pics they look de-beaked, but they aren't the usual battery hen breed...

    Thanks all :)
    They're Meadowsweet poultry. The 'gold star' ginger one did have a bit of a damaged beak. I think it's growing back.
    Yeah, first egg was quite exciting! A double yolk too. Although there were a couple of soft ones to begin with.
    Their names are Daisy (the 'speckled star') and Annie Mac (the ginger) :) one of them was originally named Satan, but a few people protested!
    Annie Mac laid her second today, although not in the nest box, again. She kept going in and out of the house yesterday but eventually laid it in a bush. Today it was under the house.
    I'm thinking of making the run a bit bigger, or create another from the side of the house.

    Keeper of the hens

    I'm glad they are laying, you have some lovely breeds. I love all the shots with them looking straight at the camera. Pretty chucks! ^__^

    Their run looks brill, and they seem to be having lots of fun and enjoying the nice weather :bigsmile:

    They do look to have been de-beaked (you can see especially on the speckled star close up photos, can't tell with the other one) , hatcheries / poultry suppliers will do that sometimes without telling new owners, which isn't very nice of them...it rarely affects them though. Sounds like the Annie Mac's beak was done badly, but if it is healing and not infected it will be fine...

    2 girls and 2 boys, they are about half grown now. I got them when they were a day old and all 4 of them were in a container smaller than a shoe box. Don calls them my "juvenile delinquents" because they pull the leaves off his dogwood tree...they are still sweet little things though.:bigsmile: Their feathers are just starting to get curly now, so they will look like big fluff balls soon.

    Sara the wild birds are just everyhwere at the holiday house we went to they love to come up for a feed of seed and el chaeapo cat food that we take.
    We call the sulphur crested cockatoo 'scruffy' cos he is old and scruffy and was so tame, we think he used to be a pet and escaped, they are very clever and can learn to talk too.
    Eagle rock is half and hour away from us here in Geelong, a lovely spot at Airyes Inlet right on the water.

    I am on some midwifery lists and sometimes we get a woman asking advice as she is in labour. Most often her waters have broken.
    It's great reading a commentary from these women. The ones staying at home sometimes give frequent reports and then, a wait, followed by an announcemnt that babe has arrived.

    Sebastopol Geese can't fly, Kate..they are too big and heavy to get their butts off the ground...and they don't have the right kind of feathers. here is a picture of an adult Sebastopol.

    THey sure are handsome! Will your geese develop the darker head or will they stay all white? I had heard of sebastapol geese but didn't realise they had so many good qualities. I'm wondering how it came about that they should have such strange feathers and not be able to fly? A genetic defect that was bred on I suppose. They look really elegant - like ladies from the 1800's with all their crinoline skirts!

    They love to swim, NN. It was a little hard for me to teach them to swim though..they were afraid of the water at first.

    I'm afraid Don was right about them being juvenile delinquents..this afternoon they stole my cigarettes and light and through them all over the backyard...I think they had plans to smoke behind the barn..LOL

    Kate, these baby geese will stay all white. My 2 adult Sebastopol geese are the color of Toulouse geese.

    oh bless that must have been fun to watch you teaching them to swim, wow well done. I only asked as I wasnt sure if the water would collect in their beautiful curls and hold them down in the water. When you look at uncurly geese they are so sleek and just glide through the water. It is very interesting as I know geese need water to clean their sinuses and keep clean in general. I just love them to bits and if I had more land would have some for sure.

    I really wanted to but she's snapped out of it since I came back :(

    And I aren't hatching out any of my own chicks any time soon, no way!! Too much stress and worry there :) Tilly, I hereby command you to go broody :D

    OH! And this is James' new house!! :hurray:

    He's not in it yet though, he'll hopefully be making the move on Friday ^__^
    The faun he is in at the moment is slightly bigger than the black heat mat you can see inside the viv - he's gonna be terrified when he first moves in, but hopefully he'll get used to it and appreciate the extra space as he grows! :)

    superb photos again Red. Hey I love the new Viv that is well posh, I am sure he will love that, If you put his familiar flower pots and things in he will soon feel at home.

    Fingers crossed! We're going to cram it with all his hides, branches, rocks etc...we have the room to put all his toys in now!! Corn snakes don't like open empty spaces, especially when they're young, so it gives me an excuse to absolutely pack his viv with things :)

    Wow, Red..That place is absolutely palatial! Yes lots of hidey spots, climby things, perhaps a few mini footballs? A pool so he can have a brief dip...a sand pit perhaps..and maybe a look-out deck so he can survey his dominion - perhaps a multi-story apartment building (with lots of windows/doors) where he can hang-out in the hood!!!!

    Haha! Now that it's bigger it does mean his water bowl can be bigger so he can take a dip in it if he wants :)

    Nope you're not going crazy(er!) CC...my mum's so small she's pretty much hidden from view. Think you can see her arm and that is about it :rolling:

    Lovely pics Volka, I adore your boys! My sis-in-law has a springer like the one on the left of your picture, but he's a monster - she can't control him and he's so badly behaved, much like every dog she's ever had! He's scared stiff of my granddaughter which worries me a little - dogs are unpredictable when scared. I keep a close eye on him and make sure I'm between him and her!

    I just fancy a nice boiled egg with soldiers. Yum!!

    The more sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed the broken catflap - hence the "who, us?" faces on the dogs!!

    My friend came home to find his spaniel wearing the remains of the catflap, with similar 'Who me?' expression. I think it might be a spaniel trait...

    I have a very fat cat, that's why we don't have a cat flap - it'd have to be that big an average child could get through it!!! LOL!!

    We had a fat ole cat, Trouble; she preferred the door. She preferred the front door. And she preferred the door to be open by a human. A human that was bowing. And carrying a bowl of catfood...:\
