Chickens!

Old Girls

Our old girls watching the new arrivals.

Chicks

On Saturday we went to buy our new chickens, they are all SO sweet and gentle. They’re about 4 months old and should start laying in 2 months time. We got 4 Koek-Koeks, 2 Australorps, 4 Sussex and 2 Lavender Ancona chickens. We were meant to buy 10 but ended up with 12, there were just so many different breeds, I couldn’t resist!

Hens

They are all very relaxed, I was dreading introducing them to our older girls but there has been no fighting or ‘hen-pecking’ so far. In previous years we had to separate them but it’s been wonderful this time.

We love sitting and watching them walk around and scratch in the sand…

I’m off to make a cup of tea and then I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon with them.

Makes me happy:)

    Love all you lovely knitting patterns here!
    Oh – chickens – we were seriously hoping for laying hens this year…still establishing our tiny homestead.
    Enjoy!

    They’re lovely, I could sit watching chickens for hours 🙂 We’re planning on getting some pekin bantams in a couple of months. Probably only 3 as our garden isn’t very big, I’m very excited about it lol

    I really enjoy seeing your ladies watching the newbies near them. Wondering if they are talking about them. Both groups are beautiful.

    Aww, they are lovely. We have chickens too – only two though – and I could never have predicted how much fun they are. They are friendly, and funny, and just genuinely good company. Looking at yours I am wondering if we should introduce a few more to our little flock…
