If the weather forecast is anything to go by, this nice sunny morning is going to become a storm ravaged afternoon … might just have to break out the run rain coats at lunch time … No idea how I managed before the BOM Radar Must remember to move the tomato and capsicum plants to shelter also ... they both have flowers or tiny fruit which I do not want bashed off by heavy rain.
Oooh mamabokbok that is exciting! That first egg is so very special; I have pictures of all my gals first eggs. The bantam eggs are cute. Getting more than we need at the moment, I have been sharing ½ dozens with my neighbours. Luckily those neighbours are just couples or singles and not large families because a ½ dozen banty eggs is not much and they do not lay fast enough to share dozens
Tee hee Anniebee trust me, if they were ‘my Crows’ they would not be an issue .. it is only the fact that they are protected that is saving their evil black butts Actually, that is not true, I could never actually hurt them but that does not stop me thinking about it .. lol
“So what is the difference between ravens and crows? The correct answer at the end of the day appears to be 'nothing'. If you rephrase the question to 'how can you tell the difference between the different species?' the answer, at least in Australia, is 'not easily!'. Australian corvids are almost identical in appearance. The most reliable way of knowing is simply knowing which town you are in. In Melbourne and Adelaide your local 'crows' are Little Ravens. In Perth, Canberra and Sydney they are Australian Ravens. In Hobart, they are Forest ravens, and in Brisbane and Darwin they are Torresian Crows. Note, however, that there may be other species about, such as the elusive Australian Raven visitors in Melbourne.”
Be them Crows or Ravens .. I am sticking with Evil Black @#$%’s
I find retaining my sense of humour where they are concerned helpful … but there is a fine line between laughter and a maniacal chuckle
Bethan congrats on Harri’s laying two days in a row .. my little 7 month old banties are laying nearly every day but I have noticed this drops off when they get older with the bigger gals maybe laying 3 days and then taking a day or two off.
Fancy good luck with all the upcoming comps. I am not one for Royal Shows but if I was going to go to one, I think somewhere like Tassie would be nice in that the crowds I dislike so much may be more tolerable.
Another beautiful picture!
satay I hope all goes well for Patsy and looking forward to pics of her little one(s).
