Well obviously our trip to Orkney allowed the livestock here in Snapdragon's garden to get a bit out of hand.
Look who just came to introduce her new brood.
Nope that is not the same chicken as a few days ago with ever so cute day old chicks.
This is another - she had been nesting over in the damp field in amongst the brambles.
We now have 25 chickens (16 under a month old) and a duck sitting on a nest.
Euan has ceased to find the situation amusing as we are running out of suitable accommodation.
But isn't she cute? And very proud! She nudged them about 100 yards to come and say hello to me. well more likely to come and say "Where is our tea?"
