someone stick the kettle on, I need a cup of tea

I'm sorry about my absence but I've been so rushed of my feet with all of this,

And some of this

And there was this

And if all that wasn't enough to keep a girl busy this came along

And finally there is this

Yes they are in my bathtub and yes they were throughly dried off with my best hand-towels before snuggling up under a heat lamp.

And if all that wasn't enough fun for me to handle I met up with the gorgeous sara from Completely Quackers who came down to see me for a good old chin wag about chickens and other animals and to take 4 of my bantam hens to join her flock of mad bantam boys. This left me with a vacancy for some more hens, who are currently in quarenteen quarters for the moment, oh and did I mention the little bluebell pullets.

I shall tell all about everything and everyone later, right now the glorious sunshine is beckoning back outside.

P.S Bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can identify the chicks in the 2nd 3rd and 4th pictures, I know what they except the little grey one on the right of the 3rd picture. Extra double cherry on top points to anyone wanting to have a stab at telling me the sex.

Oh Jess the quail are so pretty & those ducklings... well,just as cute as can be!! I'm wondering if the yellow ones are either White Campbells or Cherry Valleys?? It will be exciting to watch them develop with you. Big love n hugs to you & please give my regards to Syd xxxx

My first visit to your lovely blog (thanks for adding me to your blogroll!) and I must say how very jealous I am of your beautiful Quail, chicks and ducklings!!

I do love Bluebells, I look forward to seeing how they mature.
