I have always known that my girls would not be able to come to Ireland with us. My friend Carole, from Whispering Pines, offered to take them. She has been my chicken mentor and treats her hens very well. I have learned a lot from her and I know she will take very good care of them.
So today was the day. Last night was their last night in Cluckingham Palace.
This morning I made scones because I know they love them and I wanted them to have a special breakfast,
So after their yogurt and blueberries, I brought out a scone for them. YUM!
And then it was time to go.
So we drove to Whispering Pines Farm. They were happy to get out of the carriers and were VERY interested in the chickens on the other side of the gate. They have their own little section for now. They can see the other hens and watch them and eventually they will join the flock.
Gladys and Olive came over to meet the newcomers.
Gladys looks a bit like Beatrix so maybe they will be friends.
I will miss them. But they will be fine.
Carole just emailed me to tell me that after a snack, they have gone to bed and are settling in for the night.
And I can visit whenever I want. 🙂
