Laid low

Storm our Chinese goose has decided to sit on a clutch of eggs, unfortunately they are not all goose eggs as she has taken hostage about a dozen duck eggs. We shall see what happens, fingers crossed there will be the patter of a few webbed feet in the next few weeks, as long as we can keep the dogs away from her, they being very partial to free range eggs. She tries to hide by getting as low as possible on the nest when we are about. We are also waiting to see what hatches from the latest batch of bantam eggs in the incubator, due this weekend, our success rate is not very good but as there are 24 eggs we should get at least one!

Boris showed us his good side last night, a delicious coq au vin. Cheers Boris.
