Oh Lordy, I know some of you who have read my posts on my Girls will think I'm stark raving mad. After all that longing, waiting, courses and subsequent posts, finally getting them, caring for them and enjoying their company, i have now let them go. They are not far away and I can still visit them at my friend Ella's Shangri La of chook palaces in Lara.
|Im trying to train Tilly at the moment so the days where The Girls were allowed free access to the back yard were limited.|
I think they will be much happier as Ella has a large block and can provide The Girls with lots of friends and plenty of space to roam and dig for bugs and worms.
They were initially placed in a separate coop until nightfall so that they could be introduced quietly this evening.
They will now have a boyfriend and I'm sure that he will find them most attractive and so i may just end up with their offspring in the future. Ella currently has chicks crossed with this big boy and a silkie and they are so so cute.
|Cafe Dyson - The coop is all clean and waiting to be delivered to Ella's. I think she is going to let her little ones use it till they can run with the pack.|
Oh, please try and find this stuff or make it. Its unlike caramelised onions. Its a jam and is absolutely marvellous with a savoury breakie. It would be fab on vintage cheese.
|Onion Marmalade, with black olives and Balsamic Vinegar.|
Followed by blueberry curd on croissants.
Oh, ive just learnt when trying to find you a link that this comes from the UK. Oh Dear. Let me know if you come across a similar Australian item or a recipe.
Cheers everyone and....
Ella sent me photos this morning and told me they had a good night. She placed them all together in the one nesting box and this morning they are out in the run with the others. I fear that Molly will have to come down a peg or two on the pecking order but really, she was a bossy boots and at times quite mean.
