Chickens!

Old Girls

Our old girls watching the new arrivals.

Chicks

On Saturday we went to buy our new chickens, they are all SO sweet and gentle. They’re about 4 months old and should start laying in 2 months time. We got 4 Koek-Koeks, 2 Australorps, 4 Sussex and 2 Lavender Ancona chickens. We were meant to buy 10 but ended up with 12, there were just so many different breeds, I couldn’t resist!

Hens

They are all very relaxed, I was dreading introducing them to our older girls but there has been no fighting or ‘hen-pecking’ so far. In previous years we had to separate them but it’s been wonderful this time.

We love sitting and watching them walk around and scratch in the sand…

I’m off to make a cup of tea and then I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon with them.

Makes me happy:)

Dunblane March Hare, MTB Race

Rich and I

Yesterday, Richard and I rode in the Dunblane March Hare MTB race. It’s my first official long race and I’m really glad I entered.

Changing a tyre

Sadly I had a puncture right near the end of the race but Richard was there to help me get going again.

Clogged bike March Hare

When we rode up through the mielie (corn) fields and encountered large patches of mud, my bike got so clogged up that the back wheel wouldn’t even turn! I found a stick and tried to remove as much as I could…

I finished the 40km race and was happy to just sit and not move for a while. What an amazing experience and thank you to my hubby Richard for all his encouragement and patience:)
