All Hands and Claws on Deck - There is Work to be Done

The boys have been 'enjoying' each others company and watching 'The Lord Of The Rings'.  The Girls have been helping Mommy with the Festive preparations.  To repay me for their nice clean coop and copious amounts of deep warm straw they decided to help me in the garden.  Today's job was digging for Parsnips to roast for Christmas Lunch.  They had great fun pecking and scratching and their was much vocalising at our haul.
I will deliver some parsnips to my parents later.
The Girls took their duties very seriously and were rewarded with the odd juicy worm.
I also picked some Parsley and Sage for the Chestnut Stuffing.
Oh Dear it's that Chicken and Sage thing again!  Bad thoughts, Baaaddd Thoughts!

Daisy was the best and digging and really was fascinated by parsnips being removed from the ground.

Poppy prefers to show off, positioning herself as high as she can and preen.
And Little Rosie prefers to perch on my back and shoulder, watching what I am up to and chattering in my ear.
I pointed the camera over my shoulder and clicked, while she cooed, bocced and brupped in fascination.
I was actually walking around the garden having a full on conversation with a chatty chicken on my shoulder.  A lovely Christmas Eve Morning.  These three will be Happy Hens for Christmas.
