Ok, I'm going to show this one picture to poke a little fun at shad and then no more I promise. I also knew that a heavy tax evasion fine would be in order so I came prepared. This is what my daughter does every day when she lets Russ pick. She places Branch up on his back and lets him take a ride. He enjoys his time up there, but, we've tried and he does not like to be up their when the saddle is on and she's riding.

Ok, here is tax fine fee's.
My I think 9 month old now Black Copper Marans Basil. He is one of 2 Drumstick sons I have left.

Here is Bubba in his full on teenage glory. He will be 6 months old on the 5th and is Basil's full brother.

And finally we have Branch my silkie boy that was hatched with Bubba. I fully never intended to keep a silkie boy, but, when my favorite boy Drumstick passed Branch wormed his way into my heart. While a entirely different breed then the Marans which I love and are my favorite breed, Branch has many of the same mannerisms that made Drumstick so special.

I know you like Marans, that is why I paid my debt mostly with them. I also love my Marans, and as long as I have chickens will have at least a couple of them. I really hope some of my girls live as long as Fat Bird. I didn't get any solo pictures of the girls tonight, but in the almost 2 years that I've had them I have enough Marans pictures of all ages and genders stockpiled to pay for tax evasion for a horse photo a day for a year.
Where did you get such gorgeous clean legged Marans? ❤️ I am trying to minimize feathered feet with the mud in my area.

I take my camera with me to the allotments every day hoping to get a couple of decent picture and to help me keep a record of how things are going.
The record keeping part is working well; the decent picture, not so much.
These are a very small selection.
This shows quite well the result of beak clipping. This young hen isn't too bad and I've done a bit of work on her beak already.

This gives some idea of the space available. I hope at some point to extend the coop run to the second where the gate thing is leaning on the post. This will put the trees in the coop run as well as provide a lot more space for the chickens in the hours of the day I'm not there to supervise them.

The sun does shine in the UK from time to time despite what you may have heard.

The area you can see is what would be enclosed in the new run.

I love the “Meh, there’s a chicken on my back” attitude from Russ! :love
