Our backyard chickens

So our chickens are settling in nicely and are all getting on well-they have been eating well and getting into my dads vegetable patch much to his annoyance! However, rather than fighting it he has decided to go with it-there are only Mangels (used for wine making) left in there now. The chickens actually help to get rid of pesky slugs and insects whilst not eating the mangels buried in the soil themselves-everyones a winner!

Below are a selection of photos of our girls:

  1. Those first eggs are always so exciting! It’s the second winter for my girls, and their production is really slowing down. I thought at first it was the molt, but that’s over and done with. I think they’re just lazy.
