The weather here this week has been fantastic and after abit of nagging by the children I put the paddling pool up today ( I'm always slightly reluctant to fill the paddling pool only for it to rain the following day ).
Yesterday my sister was in the area and paid me a visit. While Jay was here she put these little doo dahs ( I can't remember what they are called ) on the chickies. The naughty things have started to eat their own eggs. The doo dahs stop them from pecking but they can still eat. We had already tried to put mustard filled eggs in with them to put them off. Initially they were put off by them then they ate those too. Also two of the chickies are broody at the moment so I bought some hatching eggs and popped them underneath them so hopefully we will have some new additions here soon.
