Operation Chicken-The next instalment


I’ve been a bit quiet of late sorry about that but my time has been taken up by numerous things but mostly Chickens.

We managed to get the run up-by goodness it was hard-but it’s up and functioning.

All but Bertha are various types of Pekin Bantams,Rose and Edna lay beautiful Blue eggs! Bertha is a Warren type Hybrid hen,she doesn’t lay any more but that’s OK.

They seem to have settled in well. I had planned on building them a movable run too but now I’m thinking it might be better to fence some of the garden off just for them. We let them out in the afternoon for a run round the garden but it’s a game of tig to get them back in!

My kitchen is full of layers pellets and mixed corn and my shed is full of straw but they are great,really and the girls love them.

Does anyone else keep Chickens?
