    Aint nothing wrong with having some fun Jellybean that's for sure. :) We have many different friends from many cultures and religions. Part of why I find them fascinating I guess you can learn so much from others that are different to yourself and if involves a bit of fun to boot even the better :)

    Ahhhhh no easter bunny in our house when kids were wee. I always told them the truth, that the egg was a symbolic thing, of the stone rolled away down the hill when Jesus rose again and left the cave he was in. We would paint our real eggs too after they'd been hard boiled and then we would roll them down a hill, we weren't allowed to eat it until it had cracked on the way down. That was a fun day out as we had to find a hill. Always a family day and a picnic involved. Aren't different cultures amazing.

    I met a local lady who says she is a " white witch " she has a fire pit with rams head on stick and all.
    Apparently they have some wild times out there. While I find that all very intriguing , I have no desire to join in. My hubby is a Pom and his mum insisted they keep some tradition s but she always said
    " when in Rome , do as the Romans do." My ancestry is Chinese,American, Scottish and English.
    Imagine trying to uphold the centuries of tradition there .but all that being said, I wish you a happy Halloween [​IMG]

    I've had her for about 4 weeks now and she's the boss, very settled! She's a fav chook so we can't be mad at her.. It's so weird i have said this many many times BUT i really think the RIR will lay soon! Someone was scratching around the nest box I noticed and the hay and bedding was in clumps and spread around and she did a weird squat thing when i went to pick her up today also her face has been really red! [​IMG] I'm getting myself all excited which i have done every week for the past 6 weeks! LOL

    Awwwwwwww FANCY the pics kill me! Gosh you have some good looking chooks!

    Thanks Sydney, it could be a combination of the resettling and hot weather that have stalled things. Don't worry it will happen soon. A watched kettle never boils.

    Yeah he loves sitting and watching them. Though the ones we have are not very friendly. So I want to fix that. Very therapeutic. The cattle dog sits and he is patient while the young fella hugs him same as the budgie who climbs on him.
