Double yolkers are great

 We are often asked why some eggs have two yolks. A double yolk occurs in an egg when a chicken releases two yolks into the same ova. They are often produced by young chickens as their reproductive systems have not fully matured prompting the release of two yolks instead of one.

VALE Wesson

 Anyone who has been to the farm has known Wesson, our elderly Dingo/Smithfield cross. Unfortunately he will no longer greet visitors as he died last night. He was always happy even though in recent years he has been virtually blind and deaf. VALE Wesson old friend, we will miss you.  So will the Maremmas as they will have to control the foxes without your help.
