The chickens have landed

Here are our latest residents:
They live in an eglu and here are exploring their run, half an hour after arriving in their new home. I put them in the run in their travelling box, opened it up and for a few moments they sat there looking out, not moving - then one of them (the brownest one) jumped out, scoffed a bug, started pecking grass, and the other two soon followed. They then had a couple of hours of pecking grass, stretching their wings and clucking, then they took themselves to bed in their (hopefully) fox proof house.
We have three hens, and three names - we just haven't allocated the names to the hens yet. That will happen tomorrow.

Somehow I was imagining just two hens!

They look lovely, however I had in mind something a bit smaller, more easterish. Can't wait to know their names. Let me know if you get any over production of eggs!

Another Anon for you to wonder about - presumably because some of us still can't get through the new system. Good to catch up with happenings in Yorkshire during our absence.
Glad chicks are settling in so well.
Love from us

I was fancying getting one of those Eglus, but we have a fairly hefty fox population locally.


So no yummy eggs for me.

Or indeed, yummy chickens.
