Between snakes, feral cats and foxes, we haven't had the greatest luck with chickens. We are onto our third lot in twelve months, although I am happy to report that our current 'family' (2 roosters and 7 hens) have outlasted the previous lot without a single loss. Both boys were very excited to know that Daddy was planning on getting more hens. We were fortunate enough to be given three hens and a rooster by one of our neighbours to add to the new ones that Tony brought home from town. The boys have been great about being responsible for checking the feed and water each day as well as collecting the eggs. We have to work on all the eggs getting to the house in one piece but hey two out of three ain't bad lol.
I have been working on my layering skills - not sure if I am making progress or not, but at least more pages are getting done for the album and that is what matters most to me ;)
Thanks for stopping by.
