We do have more than a few lambs now. It is always nice when there are baby animals about. Lambs in particular seem to find such joy in just being alive. They bounce! Late afternoon is their favourite time because it is just too hot to do much more than loll around during the day. I completely understand. Yesterday I wanted to loll around too, it was too hot for me and is set to be as hot as 39degC 102 degF by next weekend.
|Tiny chicken eggs|
Our little pet chook, Hawkie, has started laying again. If her eggs were anything to go by, I wouldn't be certain that she was a chicken at all. They are tiny and of no use at all weighing in at a huge 6 grams (1/4 ounce).
Here is one compared to one of our regular chicken eggs. Hawkie used to lay larger eggs, regular bantam sized ones anyway but she is getting a little older now at five years of age. I'm surprised she is laying at all and regularly every second day too. She's a good egg.
Now I've done what needs to be done today and it's letter-writing this afternoon. Oh and thinking about what cake to make for Grace's birthday tomorrow. Very last minute and disorganised which is not like this list-maker at all.
