Muriel, Cleo and Erica, our chickens. Erica (above) is posing for you!
I've had a frantically busy busy busy weekend, with Eden's cheerleading competition yesterday, and today I was at a chicken keeping course, and brought home our new girls.

Muriel and Erica.

They are settling in to their new home.
Settling in.

They are not quite ready to lay, but will be soon. I'm very fond of them already, I think we all are.

Don't be shy, say hello!

  9. Yay! Chickens, I remember you saying on NM's you were going to get some. And while the chickens are lovely I am simply head over heels in love with their house - I want to live in there!

    I bet you all can't wait for your first egg, just don't boil it - fresh eggs are a nightmare to peel!
