New kids on the block, and a spooky tale

I fell in love with some hens at a sale last week and bought two.  It wasn't until I got them home and compared them to the others, that I realised they're younger than I thought.   Which is why I haven't named them yet, just in case they're not both girls!  
Here they are helping me with the weeding.  One's got more brown flecks on it's wings than the other

Bree doesn't let them get too near her yet

Meeting the locals

The other morning I opened the curtains to see one of those bunnys hoping to get a lift!


At the time when I wasn't able to blog, our cat Spaghetti died.  We buried her in our little woodland, but a few days later I saw her walking across the top of the field near the woodland.  Then I saw her again and shouted her, and she stopped and turned round, but then walked off.
Of course I don't really think it's Spaghetti or her ghost, but I'd never seen that cat round here before.
I saw it again the other day and took a photo through the window 

and here's one of Spaghetti 

Is that spooky or what?


  1. So sorry to hear about Spaghetti, they're great company aren't they. We miss ours but I'm sure you've got lovely memories too. But my goodness what an uncanny likeness.

  2. Wasn't that strange, seeing Spaghetti or her double. They are very alike.

  3. I'm very sorry to hear about Spaghetti. The same thing happened with Lucy, who died a few years ago, we'd see her walking around the house and hear her yowling. Odd, isn't it?
    Loving those helpful chickens! x

    1. Ooh, that's very spooky with Lucy, no mistaking that it was her in the house!
      Spaghetti was an outside cat so I didn't think it was really her, but now you've got me thinking....

  4. Love the new chickens Georgia, they're just lovely and those bunnies, how game/cheeky are they?
    Sorry to read about Spaghetti, very sad when you lose a pet, but Spaghetti obviously has a double!!

  5. So sorry to hear about Spaghetti, hope the new hens are making you smile. There are loads of young rabbits around here at the moment....must have been the mild winter. I love the photo of one waiting for a lift :0)

  6. I'm sorry to hear about your lovely kitty and it certainly is interesting to see a cat so similar wandering around. I hope your new chooks settle in soon with your others, it takes a while but I'm sure they will be very happy together, especially with all that green grass to feed on.

  7. Hope your hens are girlies so you get lots of eggs!

  8. That looks like a pretty close likeness and yes a little spooky....
