Fun with some Bantams.
I so loved this little guy's hairstyle, and he is right up there with the latest styles.
It was a very hot day and we popped in at a local farm to sit under a big oak tree with a cup of true farm coffee.
The day was at 36C and they have a saying here that it gets so hot that it can make a rooster cry. Now that is so true, as we fried even during the short walk from the car to the tree. Thankfully the sun could not penetrate the leaves of that giant old oak tree and it was pleasant in its shade. Obviously the bantams also know that and I think that they were waiting for a customer to arrive. It turned out that we were the customers.
So come and see.
The ideal spot to sit as the heat can even become unbearable under those umbrellas.
That swanky guy in the first photo grabbed the food out of that lady's beak and just look at her disgusted face :)
But of course, my wife, known for her love of feeding had a royal time with the bantams.
I felt something tramping on my foot and there it was, inspecting the strap of my camera bag.
She even got one to take some food out of her hand.
So, I could also get the little white lady to take from my hand. But another laugh is next.
Look at the face of that white lady as this little black came storming in :)
Then that harsh Buzzard call was heard in the sky and all of the little birds and animals scattered into their hiding places.
Always something going on at the farms and it is a pleasant experience that we had here. We have seen the bantams before, but never as close as this, as we sit at this same spot under the oak tree when we come here. But this day had a different vibe to it and thankfully they sell seeds and carrots at the farm's little restaurant. Seeds for the birds and carrots for the goat tribe. There is also a big nursery on the farm where the visitors can buy indigent succulent plants and other types of flowers.
They have picnic spots available for groups and families and it was here where I opened the local police team building event with prayer.
So yes, one can never guess what awaits when one comes out to the farms as each of them have a different character and also different adventures. There is horse riding available on some farms and we also have a wide range of wine farms. It is a hikers paradise as there are many mountain trails and nature is in abundance. Take a helicopter trip, or a small plane ride and whatever you are into, I bet that you will find it here.
There are also some famous 5 star restaurants on some of the farms.
I just wanted to give you a bit of information about the area in which we live in the Western Cape Province.
Hope that you enjoyed the pictures and the story.
And That's All Friends.
