We had a friend round to dinner the other night and he came with his 9 month old cross breed dog. He said she was a cross between the local sheep/goat guarding breed, and the same kind of animal from the next region. Frankly she looks nothing like either, and she is a blue merle, which I haven't see...

Re: Can anyone tell me if australaup and black Orpington are the same breed. Or what are the differences
Chris is quite right, and if you look at pictures of the 2 breeds today you will see some clear differences in shape. Orps are just bigger, fluffier, and more rounded in shape, and are much less what we call 'cut away' in the front. The tail carriage is quite different on the females in particular, ...

Welcome! Whereabouts in France are you, beautiful country, somewhere I lived for a while many moons ago. What sort of bird is that in your avatar - it looks like it could be a lovely big fat orpington, but it could be lots of other things as well, the image is too small for a good look!
Well after a long gap where all it seemed to do was rain, we now have a period of heat. This morning I watched a pair of broad bodied chaser dragonflies mate in mid air over a patch of water, then the female dipped her abdomen down to lay eggs about 20 times, whilst her mate waited, then they flew o...
