    I know I said I was only going to get two but what the heck!!

    The cream one (Mendlesham Amber) is called Marsha, which is short for Toasted Marshmallow because that's what she looks like.

    The Mendlesham Blue is called Wedgewood. We haven't got a name for the little Sussex Piebald at the front yet. She is very timid and has spent a lot of time sitting in a bucket hiding from the others, but she does hang around Wedgie at food time.

    Hmm, it now appears that the hen with no name could be a Black Suffolk. These hybrids are very confusing - why can't they all just have one name for one type, instead of 3 or 4 for the same breed?
