Food when it came was scorching hot but that just added to the frustration as you either tucked into it and burnt your mouth or had to sit and wait for it to become cool enough to eat comfortably and enjoy. Of course I couldn't wait because I was ravenous, so eating it was not an enjoyable experience! Menu choice was very mimited so I ended up ordering a burger which came with those horrid fast food French fries stick things which I hate, when everyone else had proper chunky chips. Needless to say I sent those straight back, The burger was nice but so deep with filling that it was almost impossible to eat. Ian and my brother in law ordered cod and chips and they got three fish goujons with some chips and a pot of mushy peas. They were not impressed. And the chips were so salty I couldn't eat them all and I never leave anything on principle!.... spent half the night drinking water as I kept waking up with a dry mouth.... Really it was a total disaster from a catering and hospitality point of view! They didn't even think to bring bread to the table so that we had something to pick at whilst we waited. Some of our party hadn't ordered starters, so they waited even longer for their first food.
Anyway, enough of our appalling meal, my new girls have paid bed and board already with three diddy little cream/pink eggs. I suppose it will be a while before I see any more from them but good to know that they are laying.
Your little chicks look incredibly cute. I'm hoping that I will be able to raise some little fluff balls from these new girls. They should make good broodies.
They haven't ventured down onto the grass yet and I think the ramp might be a little steep and slippery for them. so I need to put some extra slats on it to make it easier for them to negotiate. They are really pretty though.... I'm very pleased with them so far.
Didn't get chance to get back on here yesterday, things just got away from me and before I knew it bedtime had arrived!! How are your new birds getting along? Hope they have had a go at the grass!! I've made some changes in my runs and put my coops on like tables so they have more room and can get underneath them. Have had to add a ramp though for them to get up to the coops which they were not impressed with at all! Any more eggs or were the other day ones just what were in the system? I've done well today and got 13 eggs from 14 hens
The only one that is not laying is mother hen. She's not laid an egg since she went broody last summer plus she has been bullied by her flock mates and looked on deaths door a couple of times. I've checked for an egg but nothing so if she will ever start up again I just don't know
No probs on pointing you to the awards thread
I too think it's a good idea!
Hope your all well today Barabara

Rode out again today...we took Rascal and MeMe (Rebel was not happy to be left out!), so I'm on a bit of a roll at the moment with my riding and trying to keep the momentum going.
Hope you have had a good weekend.
Thanks Barabara! I will check that app out
Your doing great with all the riding, I'm feeling guilty for not getting out as much as I should
Right now Harry is an expensive field ornament!
Had a good but busy weekend
