Today I went up to visit my friend Carole at Whispering Pines Farm. It is always delightful to see her. But there is an added bonus because my beloved hens, Beatrix and Prudence, now live there as well. They have been there since July. I have of course missed them but they are doing fine.
They started out in the side area..with just a few other hens. But now they have all been moved to the front, bigger coop.
There are a lot of hens there…lots of potential new friends.
Beatrix’s new best friend is Gladys. They are both Americaunas and are together a lot. They sleep together in one of the nesting boxes. Beatrix was only barely tolerated by her sisters here at Brookwood Shire…she has always wanted a friend. It really is delightful to see her so happy.
Prudence was “queen” of Cluckingham Palace and misses it, I think. Her best friend was Amber who we sadly lost in March. She is part of this new flock but has not yet made any special friends.
Carole and I had a lovely visit. We share a love of hens, sheep, cats and Ireland so there was lots to talk about.
It was getting dark by the time I left and everyone was getting ready for bed.
