Starting from number six there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

A few pics, for you, I came across in my Photos.

The Sloth was at a Wildlife Park near Burford, Oxon. Peter

Bit early for the bird’s yet, won’t be long though. Peter

Swans were local to me. Peter

The Black Silkie that was on the Photo Page last night is a big hit with our Holiday Guests. She looks as someone said on the Forum to have attitude. She tries very hard to be friends with the other Chickens but unfortunately for her it is all to do with the pecking order and she is bottom and gets bullied. As she is on her own since the White Silkie was taken by the Owl, she tries too mix with the other Chicken but they chase her off. It has made her quite friendly quickly with the Holiday Guests as she hangs around with the Chickens outside the Cottage doors hoping for a crumb. Being small and cute as someone said last week she tend to be given extra crumbs which keeps her around the Cottages for longer.

We have two Silkie Chicks a Gold and a White that when they are older will be able to be housed with her. There are also over 30 eggs in the incubator waiting to hatch. There is a good selection of different colours. White, Gold, Black and Blue and the intention is to breed them next year once they reach egg laying.

We find lots of the word associated with Chickens not to be very nice. Poultry, Fowl, Pullets, Poults and even Chicken itself is not that nice. We tend not to use the words other than Chicken. There must be a few more that you know. Maybe regional names.
