Tuesday was a very exciting day in our house as we finally, after many years of wanting and willing and waiting, our little ladies arrived to Chateaux le spoilt chook house. This deluxe hotel was cleverly crafted by Mr.GW and almost all of it is made out of an old swing set with all parts repurposed. I'll do a full blog on that another time....Lets get some introductions happening first and show you some baby photos!!
This is Fiona, and she is the under dog who had a run in with a bad hairdresser. After the first full day of watching after her, it's clear she has some spunk about her and should perk up in no time.
Peak a boo!!
Fiona again, very curious of me...behind her you can see the self feeders that Mr.GW made out of polly pipe. He also made a self waterer, so the ladies can be all set for days need be. She is standing on what use to be the double swing of the old swing set.
Princess Penelope and Charlie although I can't tell them much apart at the moment. Yes, thats their very own roost swing, you know for kicking back in the sun.
Room with a view! This is my girl Nigella.
I can't tell you how happy and heart warming this makes me feel. They are 14 weeks old so around 6-7 weeks for them to settle in and make friends. Within the first few hours they had used the feeder and worked out the waterer, which is a little thing they peck and water comes out - so clever my girls! They did on the other hand need help up into bed, but sometimes a lady needs a hand.
Ok, I'm off, I need to make my cuppa and see that rock on the left hand side out side the cage? I'll be there in 5 minutes to watch the sun come up, take out some bread scraps and see how my ladies are going.
Ciao, Jan x
