chickens

about 11 weeks ago we brought 10 lovely brown shaver chickens....18 weeks old. Over the last little while, they have become a big part of our day...watching their funny antics, their 2 legged sprints from here to there, their dirt/dust baths, and personalities emerging. We have added 3 more to the flock, and so far, while they aren't best buds, its working out good. So, now we have around 75 eggs a week! ...thankfully lots of people love sharing with us...eggs have never been consumed so much! I am even looking for reciepes with lots of eggs. ... a blessing for sure, to have these little funny birds!

Oh yay, chickens. From a fellow mummy of 4, we go through a lot with egg loving children & baking, i dream of having our own chickens - one day - when we build our farm. Congratulations on such a success with the chickens, i can only imagine them having quirky personalities, love it!! Love Posie
