Having a Rooster around is very obvious, the pecking order was quickly established, Harry immediately took on the role and pack leader, he established himself amongst the girls by challenging Frannie and Annie for first in the hen house at night time, deciding who eats first and who he would like to "attempt to mate with'.. the poor wee Sussex were quickly demoted to bottom of the pack, although they are getting so big, they aren't actually too intimidated by the big Man. He has a good set O' lungs on him too, 5.50am he's cackling away waking everyone up..who needs an alarm clock?
We are loving having him around, it's really interesting just watching the group dynamics. Hurray for Harry.

I'd like you to meet Miss Ivy Knight - Our Niece.
This little gem of a girl is such a treasure. Brooke's sisiter Caroline and hubby Phil, stayed with us at our last place for 8 whole weeks before heading to Honk Kong for Phil's teaching post. That was when Miss Knight came into the world. We had the pleasure and privilege of sharing such a magical time with them, one we will cherish forever. Ivy will be 1 real soon. They are coming home in December for a visit
