It was very nice to get home to this on our front door, courtesy of my little sister:
The next day was not so nice, discovering that what I thought before we went away was Betsy, one of our silky bantam chickens, getting a bit plump was in fact now a giant tumour thing and I don't want to talk about the hideousness of it all. So, she is no longer with us. Here's a photo of her just after we got her :)
Lacy, her sister, has made up for it by changing from a really neurotic chook to one that quite happily wanders all over the yard and follows me around whenever I go outside. She also presented us with these that first day and then has laid almost every day since. Good Lacy :D She even sneaked into the shot here lol.
