There seems to be a tradition here in the UK that when the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament is on the weather is variable - usually sunshine and torrential rain in turn. This year is no exception but at least that very expensive roof can come over Centre Court and keep some of the matches going.
Yesterday we went to our feed merchant to stock up on food for our various animals. As we arrived in the yard, so did a cloudburst so I am posting two photographs of typical June weather.
The chicks are a week old today and we have let them out into the run for the first time, although mother soon took them back in again. She is most agressive. You nearly need a suit of armour on when you put their food into the chicken hut - she comes flying at you like a bullet and you have to shut the door quickly to avoid being pecked to death. She is certainly looking after them well and they have almost doubled in size.
