Just phoned their new family to check that they have settled in.
They were asleep when they arrived at their new home last night and therefore transferred easily into their house, which had gone with them.
They are happily 'pecking about and laying eggs'. Margot has already laid hers and one of the speckledys was making a noise and getting ready to do the same.
We are happy and relieved to know that everything seems to be fine.
Their new children will be collecting their eggs on returning from school this afternoon.
Relief on our part and happiness and excitement on the new owners.
