It looks like our lovely rooster Collin has leg problems. He is an ‘orpington’ which is a heavy breed and apparently prone to leg issues. He is lame and in the chicken world when you are a bloke this is not a good thing. He has stopped crowing, looks like some sad old man hunched up and runs with great difficulty (which he shouldn’t be doing). We are going to isolate him and hope that this helps the situation – I have my doubts. Quick tissues needed.
And to make matters worse, Gladys is now sitting on only 5 eggs – but that’s another story.
I still haven’t planted my salad and tomato garden yet – but am hoping to do that in the next few days. Which means that beautiful buckwheat will stay in the garden for a bit longer.
I have decided that I will let the pics do the talking this week … it was raining when I whizzed out with my camera (covered of course!)
Garlic growing like mad.
A jumble of spring colours … and rain!
A tub of stinging nettle
Happy gardening …
