The twins first Christmas but sadly Drummy's last.

This christmas was tinged with sadness as Drummy passed away she was a old chicken and had not been quite right  for a while but had always came good in a day or two .
The beer fairy found her near where she slept at night maybe she died in her sleep and my son buried her in the backyard and planted a dragon fruit plant we will miss her she was a real character. 
 Uncle Joe and his  nephew

 and this is Aunty May with her neice


Just chilling after christmas dinner








 We are sitting up waiting for our dinner bibs on and all.
 we are still waiting

 Dozing in the great outdoors
 A good brush after the bath
 Fluffy and smelling good.

 Angus is sitting in the sun till he is at least half dry.


All dressed up but will not stop kicking the legs
Kidney the guard cat

 They drove me home today so I showed my grand daughter the garden she likes ceiling,
but a roof of moving tree leaves was something new to her.

 The amazement in her eyes was wonderful
 and she is such a cutie


 Watching the leaves
Watching me.

  2. oh I get just as sad as the family when a bloggers pet dies. 'Peacefully while sleeping' is good, and I hope for that one myself.

    1. I guess a natural death for a chicken is rare.
      They are wonderful well most of the time.
