I was even able to spend quality time with my girls, who I absolutely ADORE! My laying hens are such friendly souls....unlike the silkies we have at the moment, who have a mind, will and therefore also a residential address all of their own. The male is short tempered, bossy, and unfriendly....hence why he's still only called..."THE MALE"....hmmm. Frankly, I don't know what he does all day:-/...but all I can say is I'm relieved that I don't have a male like him in my life. He's also lived the good life - 2 wives - up until a few weeks ago, when his Hen no 2. just lay down and died....can't say I blame her, sadly; - I probably would have done the same thing myself, because let's be honest, if she was feeling suicidal, which she must have been by then, what good was that going to do her?!? Oh and PS: He's not even good looking??.....yes I'm still talking rooster here...we've had some damn fine lookers in the past, I'll tell you!
So I'm wondering if subconsciously, maybe that's why I've kept him around.....to remind myself of how lucky I am that I have the man I do!So back to our peace loving, gentle, friendly girls.....not only are they good layers, but they are kind, tolerant and very gracious when it comes to all the little peeps that visit here, and ...sometimes they're even good for a laugh or two:-)Oh I forgot...of course it was a good day today...it was THURSDAY!!
The kids, Lizzie and I are off to see TOY STORY 3 in 3D this evening; Hubby is in JHB for the night:-(.....but then I do always have this little man to keep me happy:-)
