Things have deteriorated around here... more chicken pops, less actual chickens, where do I start? After my cheery last post I picked up Lucy from school to find she had spots all over. And I mean ALL over. Big, nasty red spots. Poor thing. So we are just waiting for Bill to be next. So much for the vaccine. Hmmm. Not recomended.
Meanwhile the previous evening there was a big, wild storm here with loud,cracking thunder and lots of lightning & rain. In the dark, stormy night a fox got into our chook pen and wreaked havoc. In the morning poor old Rocky was the only one left standing, feathers missing and glassy eyed. All the others gone. Feathers everywhere. Awful. What a bleak feeling... so many of my darling chookies dead. Lovely Jack the Farmer came and reinforced the chook house and neighbours & friends, like Kate, Brendan, Alison & Julie were kind and sympathetic which helped alot. Anyway... life goes on doesn't it and kids help with that too. Today we came across two new chookens, one black, one white and have put them in with Rocky. So we'll see what happens. Fingers crossed!
So, life has been a bit tough this week. Not much time for sewing either but that can wait. Anyway, nothing keeps me down for too long! Goodnight now from the house of Dandelion. x
