It is very hectic around here at the moment, lots of travel to the property and building organising going on, as well as running around picking up building materials etc. Michael and I went and picked up a whole car trailer load of cladding for the shouse this morning, and when I got back, I thought I would check on Mummy hen as her babies are due today...2 have hatched out so far, 1 plymouth rock and 1 speckled sussex. So, I am waiting patiently, there are quite a few others that are starting to crack, so I am hoping most of them should hatch, there will likely be a few that don't hatch though, when we candled it appeared that 2 weren't fertile, and there has been the odd occasion where I have had to put a cold egg back underneath her as she has forgotten about it, so we shall wait and see how many end up hatching....

I am hoping my week starts to settle a little now, I have so many things to catch up on, I need to get the kefir grain that Liz sent me going, and send her off some seeds, catch up on the washing and just take a break for a couple of days I think..
