Our trip today was to meet a fellow chicken fancier. He had contacted me via one of the poultry sites I follow, wanting a La Bresse cockerel and a trio of Buff Orpingtons.
As he was coming from Derry we offered to meet him at more or less the half way point between his place and ours, which is Sligo. We duly met up and spend a pleasant half an hour talking chickens, goats, pigs and growing veg. It's always nice talking to like minded people, and we are sure our birds, which we hatched in the incubator and watched grow up have gone to a good home.
Knowing that the tides are once again on the spring and Ireland is under an orange code weather warning we hoped to catch some of the big breakers that we had missed last month.
