The Great Feather Mystery - an Award and a Tribute!

Yesterday afternoon when we all went down to the end of the garden to check on the new hens - we found feathers everywhere under the cherry tree! This is me checking it out. Then Trilby joined me:

Aoife was looking a bit suspicious:

But she said those feathers were not her doing
And all the hens were fine:

Leigh thinks the sparrowhawk who comes every so often may have taken a collared dove - all that was left was the feathers :-(

On a happier note - we have been honoured with an award from Basset Momma - thank you! We will try and fulfil the conditions very soon :-)

and we have also received a beautiful tribute to our dear sister Caoimhe from Haopee which we will keep on   our Rainbow Bridge page. Thank you for this lovely image!


  1. I like that tribute and your award! Congrats!

  2. Congrats on the award. And we love Caoimhe as an angel.

    Glad the hens are okay.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. A lovely tribute to Caoimhe.

  4. That's so nice of Haopee.

  5. Your award was very well deserved. What a lovely tribute to Caoimhe! Too bad about the bird but Aoife did look pretty funny with those feathers!
