Millie is one of the “Crettyard Women” (aka Soo’s harem):
Went broody a few weeks ago, and we arrived home to discover she is now a proud mammy! Hopefully it’ll turn out to be a hen rather than a roo this time…
Thanks for the update, joe. Here’s hoping for a hen.
(The other) Soo xx
The expression on that hen is of the “you lay a finger on My Baby and you lose it to the elbow” variety.
A fine homecoming surprise, I call it.
Went out earlier to check on the new arrival, only to find the coop completely deserted. After a few seconds panic, thought I’d better check round the wooded bit round the back…
PS - this time, we’re playing safe with the name!
Sam’s a good choice, joe. Your video has had OH and me grinning like grinny things. Awwwwwww.
Three days on, wings developing nicely:
The Mammy looks rather inscrutable. Is she pleased with her Chick?
Chris interpreted the expression perfectly above!
And now for the first family photo!
L-R Katie II, Millie II (aka The Proud Mammy), Sam, Jules and Soo
Those Chooks rock, joe! Ab Fab.
Poultritudinous in the extreme
You can’t turn your back for a second…
Contrary to original assumptions, thattiz not a chicken.
'Tis a mudlark. A very charming one at that
We call it “sowing”
They call it “treasure hunt”
…and so to bed
Nighty-night, Lovely Chooks.
That’s lovely, Joe
