Early in the morning;

I feed the fish...

and Mrs. Benteli, she is always waiting or comes running when she sees me;

This little pair of native, crested pigeons arrive as soon as they see me feeding Mrs. Benteli. They have become fairly tame and usually breed in the garden. Generally they bring up one baby. I do not feed them to much, they still have to do their own foraging.

Billy loves a few grains as well!!

The Angelina's can never wait...they also get kitchen scraps, fruit and greens. In spring they love lots of dandelion leaves. They always look good with glossy, black feathers. They enjoy special treats too. These hens are nice and friendly birds always talking to me.

Please consider buying free range eggs. Battery hens are not happy birds. They are very poor, abused creatures.


  1. wow you have a lot of pets.. My daughter would love to help you feed the fish!

  2. Oh ein neues Blog! Habe ich gerade entdeckt liebe Titania.
    Da würde ich dir gerne etwas helfen bei den kleinen Tieren.

    Ja ich kaufe immer Eier von Hühnern in Freigehegen, ich habe kürzlich ein Film über so Batteriehühner gesehen,schrecklich!!! Zuerst dachte ich daran gar keine Eier mehr zu essen, doch da ich schon kein Fleisch esse, ist das schwierig. Ich hoffe die Freilandhühner haben es etwas besser.

    Liebe Grüsse, ich werde den neuen Blog gleich verlinken, das ist interessant, was du da so alles zu tun hast.

  3. chubskulit, yes, I am sure your little one would enjoy the fish!

    Elfe; danke vielmals fuer deinen netten Kommentar. Ja, es waere schoen wenn Freunde mehr in der Naehe waeren!

  4. Ma'am, I grew up raising our own chickens. My late mother never ran out of supply of eggs. And sometimes in the morning, for us to make some scrambled eggs when we felt like having one, we just go down and snatch the eggs even the owner was still in her roost. Oftentimes I got ouchh!!! Lovely memory this post does to me. I'm smiling through and through. Such a simple life those days gone by.

    Been slack in my commenting job and feeling down these past month or so but I do think of you often. Sorry for not coming too often.

  5. Nature and beautiful flowers.

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    jetzt musste ich aber weit runter scrollen, um deine Tiere zu finden! Wunderschöne Hennen. Ich hatte mal 2 Barnevelder, diese hatten ebenfalls so herrlich glänzende schwarzbraune Federn.
    Lieb, dein Hundi.
    Grüsse, Trudy (y statt i als Schulkind eingeführt)

  7. Hi Trudy, danke fuer dein Bsuechli, es freut mich. See you around.

  8. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
    about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
