The girls are here! Hubby finally finished building “Chateau Chook”, and last weekend went to pick up it’s new occupants. Five Isa Brown hens have now been here a week and have settled in nicely. Ella has been nicknamed the “Chook Whisperer” as she spent most of last weekend sitting in the pen with them, bonding.
Collecting eggs is THE activity of the moment. There have been 2 eggs so far, and Ella and Mia had some scrambled egg for breakfast. The chooks are enjoying all the vegie scraps we give them, and enjoying scratching around in their yard. I spied a fox on our road in the middle of the day (!), so no free ranging allowed at this stage. Their pen is huge though, so plenty of room for them to scratch around.
