We also bought 18 fertilised pure breed eggs. 6 Buff Orpington's, 4 Cream Legbars, 2 Welsummers, 1 Derbyshire redcap, 2 Lakenvelders, 3 Columbian Blacktails. The 4 layers are hybrids and should lay pretty much all year round. The pure breeds, if we get any and when they reach point of lay, will generally stop during the winter, according to our experience of our own and what the guy said, but time will tell.
|Each one is numbered and the number represents the breed.
My Nanna came to visit today. It's the first time she's been since we moved in and she loved the place. She's in her 90's and is doing amazingly. I made her some home made bread buns with slow cooked ham, a bought quiche (eventually I plan to have a few homemade ones in the freezer in case I don't have time to make fresh ones) and a nice pot of tea. She had a lovely time and really enjoyed it.
|Proving (as I now know it to be called).
Back to the grind of work tomorrow. Menu plan to follow, however tomorrow night will be a one pot, something simple to scoop in to a bowl with home made bread after a first day back in the office. I will keep the memories of this weekend with me to see me through each working day!
