A funny thing happened.....
« on: January 31, 2012, 07:24:47 pm »
I was in the field trying to persuade the pony to come back into her stable when I noticed one of the chinese geese sat in a corner looking unhappy. I went over and picked her up, she is very tame. She sat quietly in my arms and chatted to the other chinese goose so I put her back on the ground. After five minutes she still hadn't moved from where I put her so I picked her up again with the intention of putting her somewhere warm. As I held her I felt and heard a thud from behind me. The silly thing had just laid her first ever egg  :D She looked so miserable beforehand I thought she was ill. Unfortunately the egg broke but the dog had a tasty snack  :yum:
Silly Spangled Appenzellers, Dutch bantams, Lavender Araucanas, a turkey called Alistair, Muscovy ducks and Jimmy the Fell pony. No pig left in the freezer, we ate him all!
