Sad news to start the day but there was no rain and no drizzle plus Sam came home at lunch time and helped me with the weaning so things cheered up. The weanlings are having a great time jumping round their weaning pen - they have a bank which they are loving. Cassie is in there to look after them and she is also enjoying it as she is getting extra rations. I decided Tulisa might as well be weaned as well and she has suddenly started eating hard feed. This is very funny as she likes to share a trough with Cassie who is not pleased. Cassie never spits but screeches if anyone gets near her food. Tulisa has the temerity to spit at her which stops Cassie dead - I don';t think she believes anything so tiny should be capable of standing up to her! Little Star is also in with them, mainly by default as it was supposed to be Zara but Zara was not having any of it and Little Star was insistent she wanted to go with Cassie. I suppose they know best.
The boys are completely unfazed by the weather and are very lively at the moment. Today was terrorising chickens day.
