So it only took us, what, 7 or so months to actually get organised with the chickens. But! They are here! Last week we picked up our two girls and they have been happily eating, sleeping and foraging away.
Meet Daisy’s little lady: Strawberry. A Rhode Island Red.
And Harper’s lady: Snowy. A White Leghorn.
They are not fancy, picked up from the co-op and are about 16 or so weeks old now. While they won’t be laying for 4 or so more weeks, they are very much-loved by all members of the family. Throughout the day you will find one of the girls, Rob or myself out there having a chat with them. They are fascinating! And lovely company around the place.
Do you have chooks?
