Woo Hoo Block 3 finally....

This one is the girls, I hadn't had chooks until Hayden asked for some for Christmas about 6 years ago, by the time we made the shed and run he got them for his birthday in July, well it's a bit hard to ask Santa for them the night before! But now I wouldn't be without them, they are lovely in the garden, despite having to protect my seedlings, bulbs and rhubarb, they give lovely eggs and are so funny to watch. Our original batch mostly died from old age at around 6 years, they were all layers from an egg farm so 6 years was pretty good, our next batch were all named by Tulley, Vanessa, Jemima and Neville and no we dont have a rooster. Neville doesnt seem to mind her name but she is always the last one that we are chasing around the yard to lock up.
This is Lewis in the veggie garden about 6 months ago with two of them, he's a bit bigger now.

Here's my version, it's a little different to the download but I stitched mine, lost it and the drawings I'd done, drew them all up again and then found it again. I think the new version is actually a bit better, but I'm not stitching it again. That's Neville at the back looking the wrong way!
Cut your background 7 1/2"x 9 1/2"  and have fun!
