It was feeding time today and the neighbourhood gang came to join in!! The yellow Weaver Birds are the most comical. They come and call me at lunch time when I have forgotten the time. The chickens have to peck quickly if they know whats good for them. These little doves come in huge mobs and can devour a chickens lunch in seconds!

Doves and weavers waiting patiently

Just getting a better view

Go chickens – here come the mob

Ok guys – after the count of three…..

Feeding time is always a big occasion at our house – the birds eat well and they give us such great pleasure when they come into our garden. Even the chickens don’t mind! I’m waiting for the cute Red Bishops – the males are in their fine colours now in breeding season, so I hope to catch a mob of them coming for lunch!

Happy gardening xxxxx
