New Year’s resolution?

Can’t say that I’ve been particularly on top of the whole blogging malarkey for the past couple of years, but all being well, with reductions in our poultry stocks and plans afoot to save time on the B and B front, I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things. Not every day and possibly not every week but hey, baby steps are good! So, a belated Happy New Year to anyone checking in!

Of course we’re closed for business at this time of year although the weather has been pretty grim these past few months so who would want to be here on holiday here anyway? This past week has been quite nice though, albeit in a chilly sort of way…

…so much so, that Wee Man and his Silkie girls have refused point blank to come outdoors – unless I tempt them with a few mealworms for afternoon tea that is!

The main flock have been keen to find any spot in the sunshine…

And here’s an introduction to a special new resident, The Bruce, our new cockerel. He’s a Silver-Laced Wyandotte and we hand reared him last summer to step into Big Fella’s shoes – or spurs maybe? (God rest his wee chicken soul.)

    Love the Bruce! Very handsome he is.

    I think that he’s even more vain about his plumage than Big Fella was!

    I have a rooster who looks just like that! You have a LOT of snow. Happy January! c

    Nice to hear from you after so long Cecilia! I’m still keeping my eye on the Farmy even though my blogging is more miss than hit!

    Wonderful to have you back. We live in the US but have traveled in your area and loved it. Especially enjoy the pictures. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for that Pat! So glad that you enjoyed your travels in the Highlands and Islands. Not much to blog about at the moment but hey, spring is trying to put in an appearance, so hopefully there’ll be more thing to report on!
