Pet Shaming

It involves taking a picture of the offender with a note outlining their crime.

I think I like it! :D

Showery Sunday

This bowl, with contents scattered, suggested it might be raining outside.

When I followed the rice trail...

...I arrived at this.

Yep, it was raining and Annie had decided it was an 'indoor day'.

And because Violet has been feeling under the weather...

...she decided she should come in too.

As usual, Annie made herself right at home.  Violet, on the other hand, couldn't quite believe her little eyes.

Royal Three Counties Show

We visited the Three Counties Show today (Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester being the three). The best of all British farming was on display at the show ground, not just chickens!

The dreadlocked sheep was rather handsome and a bit of a poser!

A coat for ewe :)

Panda cow!

The size of cows stuns me every time.

The excitement was too much for some.

Happy faces before the downpour.  Well, it wouldn't be an English show if there wasn't some rain! 

Maddy's favourite animals at the show.

Chicks for cuddling :)

I liked this sign :)

This Pekin was a friendly girl.

This one wasn't.

The Call duck was very sweet.

A mini Peggy & Violet :) 

And a big Annie!

She's staring intently at the camera because I was 'talking' to her in 'chicken', much to the embarrassment of my long suffering children.  :D

I hope his new owners teach him to swim!

Blue eggs

We loved this tiny Serama, so cute!

An extremely fluffy Silkie.

This chap was VERY impressive!

Loved the markings on this fellow.

Barred Rock bantam.

Best in show bull.

The grumpiest sheep at the show :D

Before we left for home, we went back to see if the pigs had woken up, which they had.

And my memento of the show?

A little Peggy painting :)

Annie is growing up!

But 'Chickie' darn well refuses to let growing up deny her the spoils of chickiehood.

She is a near constant presence all over the house.

Mostly napping...

...on anything or anyone suitably comfy. 

When she's not resting up, she can be found checking out Jock the Border Collie...

...and the ladies.

Both equally brave activities!

Annie has a rather unique (in my flock), way of sitting.  
Rather than sitting on her feet, she rests on her legs, with her feet sticking out in front of her.

Like this:

 When she lies down all is hidden...

...including the way she always clasps her feet together.

My little odd ball :)
