Being someone who is not on this planet (according to my husband) I decided I would like to have a go at keeping a few chickens. After perusing the web, and finding out as much info as I could, I made a purchase of a chicken house on Ebay. I love Ebay, you can buy just about anything, except chickens! It came flat packed, and last night we put it together, it only took about an hour, and there was no cursing!
So tomorrow, we are off for a little drive to Beaulieu to buy some chickens! I have chosen, a Silver Sussex a very pretty silver grey bird with a lovely temprament, A White Leghorn, an excellent layer, sometimes laying 2 eggs a day and a French Maran which lays the most beautifully shiny dark brown eggs, with a rich orangey yolk. Its sooo exciting! This time next week, maybe we'll be eating our own eggs! Well not our own, I couldn't possibly lay an egg! You know what I mean!
