It was a fabulous suprise this morning to be greeted with congratulations down the allotment on our new arrival.
We hadn’t got a clue what was going on.
But then we saw little baby Walter!
I’m so proud and so excited!!
A few weeks ago we gave one of our allotment neighbours two bantam eggs in return for two duck eggs – a very good trade on our part I thought.
It turns out that he wanted to put these bantam eggs underneath his racing pigeons to see if they would sit on eggs properly. And turns out – his pigeons are pretty good mamas!
So does this mean we now have a Homing Chicken? And if so, do you think we could corner the market? People pay a lot for pigeons, I bet a few well trained chickens could set us up nicely!
Just kidding of course, this is our first-born, and will be my little baby from now onwards
The other egg has just begun pipping so we will see what tomorrow brings…
