chick chick chick chick chicken!

One of the nicest finds of my new area has been …..


Mayfield House, NY ….

No not New York ….

New Yatt

do you see all those Happy Hens?

apparently it all started with 10 hens and a hobby,

but like Topsy it has grown and grown ….. and grown!

Into Happy Hen Haven!

which means ….

lots and lots of bountiful, beautiful, breakfasts!

FREE RANGE EGGS!

HERE THEY ARE in close up beauty! …..

don’t they just look Happy and Content ,

I don’t know if they all have names ….

you can follow their story –

http://www.mayfieldhouse.eu/

or if you live near NY you could try them for yourself ….

BUT

I do know that Fiona has names for her lovely ladies …….

so

without further ado …..

Introducing …..

drumroll please! …….

From left to right,

Cluck, Geraldine, Margery and Lady Gaga.

I have been Inspired by Fiona’s blog many times …. well every time I visit actually!

(It was Fiona who had the inspiration to start 20 Minuters)

If you haven’t met up with her pop over and be Inspired yourself!

or see my posting under Inspiration Plus on the 1st April 2010

you won’t be disappointed!

Fiona’s posting about her New Girls is a really happy read ….

though at the time of her writing there had been no real product!

Which made me smile because I had just been watching

Series One of   “THE GOOD LIFE”

(for those of you who are not old enough to remember them being shown first time around)

the DVD is well worth a buy …. though it costs much more that a

dozen eggs!

The episode “Say Little Hen” is really funny, just old fashioned

good English humour

where “Poor Barbara” paints the greenhouse converted into henhouse – pink

what made me smile is that Tom and Barbara have the same situation as Fiona ….

NO EGGS!

(I won’t give away the ending!)

The series is probably not politically correct by today’s standards but is soooooo Good!

Oh, by the way …

The Good Life - Complete Series 1 [DVD] [1975]

from Amazon ….. it is Eggcellent viewing!

Now I am saving my pennies for ….

The Good Life - Complete Series 2 [DVD] [1976]The Complete Series 2!

As   BILL COSBY once said   …

“You can turn painful situations around through laughter.

If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.”

I think that really sums up the series ….

and life itself …..

even Hens and no Eggs!

Hope you all have an EGGCELLENT  INSPIRATIONAL DAY wherever you are ….

NY or New Yatt!

  1. What a great post…fun and interesting and informational too. I’ll have to look for the Good LIfe series. I’m just finishing up ‘Cranford’ & Return to Cranford….and am enjoying them so much.

  2. Being a vegetarian and animal lover I just love to see hens roaming free! I wouldn’t consider buying anything but free range eggs. The eggs of happy hens just have to be better!!

  3. I love ‘The Good Life’ but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that episode. I’ll have to dig out my DVD and double check.
