Today the girls had a visitor - & I would assume that this was their 1st encounter with the small prickly kind? They all took turns in having a peck and following it around the garden and then lost interest really quickly.
THIS IS A DIARY ABOUT OUR PET CHICKENS, WHO LIVE FREE-RANGE IN OUR GARDEN. HOPEFULLY I WILL BE ABLE TO DISPEL ANY MYTHS ABOUT NOISE AND SMELL AND INVITE MORE PEOPLE INTO THE BRILLIANT WORLD OF KEEPING CHICKENS. THESE WONDERFUL BIRDS MAKE GREAT PETS FOR CHILDREN AND PROVIDE HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT AND FANTASTIC TASTY EGGS FOR VERY LITTLE MAINTENANCE AND COST.
Having now moved out into the countryside we have no neighbours so have 13 hens and 2 very nosey cockerals!!
