Billy looks good on a diet of best pedigree chicken!

Big Mo has lots of news for us from over the border in Wales

Hi to you all the above picture was in the papers today it makes good reading. I for one could not believe the amount of Labradors that were bred last year, it's hard to imagine where they all go. Now an update on Kevin's mum she is making slow progress but was discharged from hospital this morning. She has had a damaged muscle which has been bleeding causing the leg to swell with severe pain, so lets hope it is starting to get better, I think the bleeding has now stopped. Now Kevin's billy is another story he was so well behaved at the show Saturday but he got carried away this morning when one of Kevin's prize laying hens flew out of the coop and Billy was waiting for it! So Kevin is one hen short, and it was his favourite! Talking to Rhiannon today she was on night duty last week when there was a lot of wind and rain. She arrived home to find all the family warm and cosy all sound asleep in bed but in the Kennel's there was utter chaos. The wind had blown the felt and the boards off the roof the dog's beds where floating in the water.The poor dogs where up to there knees in water they were soaking wet ,and if you can laugh one was stood on a breeze block so proud that he had found a dry spot! The dogs are really pleased they think the soaking was worth while as they are back in the house till the kennels are repaired. Kevin and Rhiannon will have the youngsters at Crufts so that will be great to watch and good luck. Saturday is the start of the Rugby Six Nations and it's Wales v England the Welsh team will be mainly made up of the Ospreys my favourite team so I think we have a good match to look forward to. Speak to you next week.
Thanks Mo, lots of news this week, hope Rhiannon's dogs have recoverd from their ordeal in the wet kennel. And Billy, well he is a real Bedlington, I wonder if he ate the prize hen?

Don't the eggs look and taste so much nicer than supermarket ones-I love a really strong yellow almost orange yolk.

If you waqnt dark brown eggs with orange yolks you need some Speckled Marans. Don't know what Billy will make of their flavour.(the chickens that is).
