I love Little Suzy's Zoo ,especially Witzy so this was lovely to stitch. Though had to use a hoop as the fabric was so big and floppy.
This is the section I stitched , and I think he fits in well with the rest .
The kimono part is a birthday card I made for my cousins' daughter. It was quick and easy , but very effective and I like it.On to the freaky egg .
We have four hens , they are rescued ex-battery hens . We got them in May and a couple still have bald patches , but they quickly adapted to outside life and soon showed natural hen behaviour ,which is good as they can have lots of problems. One of the hens has always had problems with forming the shell on the egg , she can't seen to retain enough calcium to make the shell , despite being given shell supplement with the feed. We don't mind too much , as we have more eggs than we need so a couple of "squishies" don't cause any problems , we just clean them up and leave her to get on with it , she's happy enough and thankfully the soft eggs don't seem to cause her too many problems , as they can be more difficult to lay.
Anyway , this is what I found the other day when I went to check the coop
The shell hasn't quite formed properly , so a bit of the membrane was sticking out . It looked so weird. I used the egg pretty much straight away to avoid bacteria getting inside , and it was fine , just not quite finished lol.
Thanks for dropping by , have a good week,
