Forefront Border Hen From My 2007 Breeding Season, Pictured With Her Nest Sister's Silhouette.
Granny, Like All Good Grannies, Love Oatmeal!
TIP: Oatmeal either regular or steel cut oats offered free choice are excellent foods especially for Borders to help put weight on the hen prior to breeding season or to fatten thin cocks a bit, oatmeal should also be in the breeding cage to feed their chicks!
Granddaughter Pictured With Her Good Looking First Cousin!
Wonder What Prompted This Post? Yesterday afternoon as I watched Mary, my ten year old granddaughter, dance with her ballet class, I was impressed by her grace and movements. I am sure you are not surprised that I and all the other parents and grandparents thought our child was exceptionally talented and couldn't help being proud of our genes!
This morning I was still somewhat puffed up when I started rounds in the aviary and again experienced the same familial pride when I watched my Borders! It really is All In The Family!!
