Chickens at last

I've been saying we're getting chickens for a while now, but today they have arrived.

A man in a van from Forsham Cottage Arks drew into our drive just after half past twelve and produced a crate of chickens and

various pieces of wood and wire with which to make an ark and run for the chickens. He then proceeded to put it all together and in next to no time it was all ready for the hens to move in to.

Last but not least he produced all the containers we would need to feed and water our hens and bags of food, grit and wood shavings. He was gone before two o'clock.

The girls have started to explore their new home

and quickly worked out where they can find food and drink.


  1. How wonderful! Enjoy your girls, they bring so much pleasure and of course tasty eggs!

  2. Thank you, Karen. I find them quite soothing and I'm sure we shall enjoy them and their eggs. One has more of a comb than the other two, so she might lay fairly soon, if we're lucky.


I look forward to reading your comments, it's always good to hear encouraging words or relevant hints and tips.
