You're lucky with your boyfriend- there's no way my husband would pose with my hens! He claims not even to like it when they chase him around the garden (though I'm sure he does really). ;)

Mine even pretends not to know their names, though of course thy are the topic of daily conversation. Mind you, I still don't know which of his model planes he is talking about, which I suppose is the same sort of thing.

Hey all.. Sorry for the lack of posting recently! Been very busy at work and home!

Just a quick update on my Abacots.. Both Cosmo and Jet are still doing very well! I'll post some pictures up later if I get a chance! They are MASSIVE now, and jet is pretty much quacking now too! Loads of feathers coming through on both of them, but Jet more so.. Cosmo seems to be a bit behind on the development scale.. That or jet is powering ahead!!

Who ever told me to take lots of pics because they grow so fast, certainly wasn't wrong!
