My little chicks have all
grown up and the hens are laying profusely.
Its a rule around here that if
you come to visit you have to
take a dozen eggs with you
Very shortly some of the hens will
go broody and there will be more chicks.
That means that the Lavender Orpington
and Silver Laced Orpingtons needed to be
moved to houses with covered yards due to an
abundance of Red tailed hawks in the area.
They don't bother the adults but babies disappear
rather quickly if the yard isn't covered.
Moving chickens is easier said than done.They don't herd well at all and resistbeing caught and carried.Usually, you can only have one rooster per yardbut the Orpingtons all get along quite well.Back inside I'm working on the centerfor my large Blockheads 3 quiltfor my appliqué followers.The center is a 27" x 27" block.Besides a background it still needslots of leaves and 3 lavender blooms.
