best seat in the house

November 6, 2008 § Leave a comment

We’ve had awful weather this week – cold, wet and miserable. We even had a frost last night – it’s November for heaven’s sake!

Anyway, Poppy’s been spending a lot of time sitting in tea-cosy position, with the chicks burrowed well into her feathers. I try to let her out for a bit of a dustbath and flap at least once a day. At the moment the knack is trying to find a time when it isn’t raining. Or sleeting.

The bubs are now old enough so that they have one main goal:  


one of the boys with the best seat in the house!


Poppy’s very good – drops into a very strange looking deep crouch when she moves around so that they don’t all slide off. The record so far was five chicks on top of her. No chance of a photo of that, of course.
