Our BIG move

This is my diary of our new life in New Zealand up to 2011 when we moved to QLD to be near our grandchildren...

we have had some babys.....

well the hens found a gap between 2 bales of hay and started nesting - 2 eggs hatched but the chicks ended up dead - by the roosters we expect - they were pecked - or it could have been the cats....So we quickly finished the new hen house in the field and transfered the eggs/hens....we also found 3 chicks that had made it.......all together.....Ahhhhhh!

the next day another chick hatched...that was the lot, I guess moving the eggs disturbed the hens and they stopped nesting. But at least these survived......

Oh and the Sheep are returning for Xmas......Bahhhhhhh (Putting them in the paddock furthest away from our bedroom! I don't want them keeping me awake again!
