Potty trained?

With all the recent talk about egg-laying, I had to share this with you - the eagle-eyed Mrs. Smallholder spotted this tiny hens egg in the chicken-run - now you know how newspaper reporters compare the size of things with Olympic swimming pools, elephants or double-decker buses? well, here is the egg with a normal egg and a double-decker bus...

I was poo-picking outside of the alpacas shelter this afternoon, when Autumn Gold sniffed around the bucket, reversed, and promptly deposited her contribution into the bucket, saving me the effort! I didn't have the camera with me, and let's face it, who would have believed me anyway?


  1. Wow..Giant Eggs and Potty trained alpacas....not to mention the alpaca potty people at the bottom of the garden with a poo bucket !!......what will you think of must be pacatastic !!......Jayne

  2. Great Lilliputian photo Dave - we think you've 'cracked' it! Shirley & Robbie

  3. All this talk of eggs!!!!!

    Despite several verbal roastings, the Patou chickens, Dottie, Doodle and Lulu remain......bunged.
