Nearly two weeks ago dear friends gifted us with ten hens and a rooster, bringing our chook population up to the grand total of twelve.
The children spend hours in the chook pen lavishing attention on them and have named each bird
Such an inexpensive pet they provide hours of pleasure and best of all we see a return with egg production
Apparently the chooks need assistance in being 'put to bed'
they appear to be incapable of walking up the ramp themselves;)
The chook pen and the neighbouring garden, which is currently dormant, are totally weed free thanks to the hours put in by this team.
We had no idea the chooks would prove to be so popular
