A momentous day today. Velma and her chicks have finally been let out of their run, into the the BIG WIDE world that is THE ORCHARD!
There was a little bit of fisty cuffs from a couple of the others. Poor things, they have such sort memories, that they can't remember, that before her maternity leave, Velma was one of them. It all seems to have settled down now Velma is teaching her young ones how to scratch in the leaves.
has been over to check all is well, but, being a man I have a sneaky feeling that he really has one thing on this mind!
I am like an old mother hen myself, and keep running out to check that they are all ok. Not much work is going to get done here today, so am tempted to take a cup of tea, and some sewing and go and sit in the Orchard, but that would just be toooooo sad.
Let go Michele, you have to let them go!
Much love from a very overcast Dorset xx
