Aww how exciting! Great photo 🙂
Yes, how she will be able to look after 16 chicks with all the foxes there are around, I don’t know!
OOOO great capture, quite a collection there
Many thanks. I nearly trod on them as I was in Max’s field poo picking!
Someone’s been busy!
Yes, Mrs Pheasant. She’ll have quite a brood following her around the fields. Do hope that the fox doesn’t get them, poor little things! Thanks for dropping by.
Wow! You really managed to get up close, brilliant photo.
Yes, she flew up when I accidentally got too near her nest. Thought I would grab the opportunity and take a snap! Thanks for the visit. Much appreciated.
Someone has been very busy, who’s eggs are they?
Yes, Fiona, Mrs Pheasant has laid 16. Do you think she knows that the fox will probably kill 14 of the chicks! I hate foxes. Everybody is losing their hens all around me. I fear for mine every time they go out in the paddock. Lovely to see you, thanks for coming.
Mrs Pheasant. 16 that was a labour of love! Will be difficult to raise them all. Hope she makes it.
Oooo now who laid those?
Mrs Pheasant. Will have quite a large brood if they all hatch!
Yes, they are lovely aren’t they, but the chicks will be even better. Perhaps I will try to get some photos of them, but I think I would have to take a chair up to the meadow!
How exciting and what a lot of eggs
Yep, she certainly has been busy!
I love the focus in this photo but wow! that is a lot of eggs in one nest
Maybe hen pheasants work on the same premise as mothers in developing countries. That is, have lots of offspring because over 50% of them will die young! Sad, but true. Thanks for popping by.
oooh very exciting x
Yes, I’ll keep an eye on her. Not that I can do anything to make life easier for her. Thanks for the visit!
