The Versatile Blogger Award

I was delighted to receive the above award from Klahanie, one of my fellow bloggers who was the initial and very deserving recipient of the 'Versatile Blogger Award'.

I also said that I hoped it wouldn't go to the girls heads, but looks like I'm too late as Braith seems to have lost hers all together!

Calling all chickens

'At last! Something great on telly for us to watch!'

'Why? What's on the box? Is it Chicken Run again?'

'No, it's a cool programme about the private life of us chickens! It's on BBC2 at eight o'clock tonight.'

'Oh dear! I'm not sure I like the idea of that! My life and my space is very private thank you very much, I may not choose to share it with the nation!'

'And mine too! I like to take my dust bath in private! Goodness me is nothing sacred?'

'Come on girls, those humans still need to learn a few things about what goes on inside the chicken coop! We are amazing creatures and our ancestors have been around for so much longer they have.'

'Hopefully they will have have done lots of research and read a few good books along the way before they have an idea of what we are about!

Great Brit-Hens do us proud

It's been a disappointing few weeks with all our sporting heroes crashing out of the football or tennis, leaving England and the whole of Great Britain deflated.

However, our little hens, all over Great Britain have the most amazing talent and we should be proud of them.

My girls, along with millions of other little hens, score nearly every day when they deliver a fantastic food source for us humans to eat - just by laying one of their precious eggs!

They don't get paid millions of pounds for their talent, they just ask to be treated well and to be given a good standard of living.

I often feel like I am finding something very special when I open the nest box to discover yet another one of their little treasures nestling in the straw.

The sporting tournaments will come again for those to show off their sporting prowess , but for once in a while it's a good thing to acknowledge the simple yet amazing achievement of our great little Brit-hens!!
