Juno muscles in on the hens' corn - last year she grew some wheat on her back, as a result of catching it in her fleece. This year, she's decided to have a personal groomer. She is, in fact, large enough to accommodate several dozen hens but only the Light Sussex is brave enough so far.

I think she may lamb this weekend. She's bagged up and has milk, so anytime now. Hopefully, the weather will stay good and give them a good start.

I think her fleece is so thick and dense, she barely feels it.

It was temporarily May up here Dilys, but the weather has decided it's April again. Sorry for the confusion!
