Hello

It’s a glorious day here in Colrain.  The weather is perfect.

ETSY

Yesterday I received 2 orders for Salve., I had almost given up hope but then the orders came in.  I shipped them out yesterday and it will take some time to get used to things.  It is exciting.

 5 hens were bought, 2 for Lynn and 3 for me.  I got a Welsummer, a Buff Orpington and a black Bantam.  I had a Buff before, she was the sweetest hen but very shy.  Other hens picked on her till she grew.  They are very big birds.   Orpington originated from England in the Counry of Kent. She had a best friend Gertrude who was a Frizzle Bantam.  They were so cute together.   I am going to name this Buff Emma too.  I also got a Welsummer and named her Sweet Pea.  I have wanted a Welsummer for quite some time, they lay large dark eggs with speckles.   Welsummers are a Dutch breed and are a cross between other breeds. There are a few different colors but Sweet Pea is what they call a speckled bird. They are supposed to be very friendly.  The black Bantam is named Louise.  She is stunning,  Dark, dark black.  She is quite friendly.  I put them in after dark and no one buy Milly paid much attention to them.  She sort of gave them the evil eye but she is never aggressive so no worries there.  This morning only one bird pecked them and I moved  her for the time being.  Things are going good and in a week or so they will be part of the gang.

My cousin left today and will be home this evening.  He was a big help around the farm and I am hoping that he will come back for Christmas.

I love your new girls. My Amber is a buff orpington. She is not a very good layer, but she is the sweetest, friendliest hen. I hope your Emma is the same. They look young. How old are they? How exciting to have more hens. Hope they continue to settle in well.
