A blog about our home near Ellesmere, North Shropshire

Guess what? We went to the Auction at Oswestry Showground yesterday and we came home with a few waifs and strays. Alden bought these Orpingtons with his pocket money, a black called Onyx, a splash called Doris and two blues called Bluebell and Sooty.
Keith rather fancied these Legbars,
and we really went to buy some replacement Welsummers. These are really timid.
I wanted some stripey birds and these Scots Greys were just right. They are lovely birds, quite friendly and surprisingly soft feathered.
