About a month ago I looked in the chicken coop and realised that my flock (I use the word lightly!), had been depleted. We only had 4 big girls left and weren’t getting any eggs!!!
So a trip to Thornes, which is affectionately known as “The Chicken Place” in our house, bright and early one Saturday morning was called for.
A quick stop by the Rhea Pen, with Cuddles the school teddy bear.
Then time to pick the chickens. I always get different chickens, so I can tell who’s laid which eggs and for a little bit of variety! Choices choices…..
Mine was easy – Venus the Bluebell, lays a “normal brown egg”
The pink one chose next, Serena, the Maran Cuvee, who will lay dark brown eggs.
And finally the skyline, who’ll lay blue eggs! We struggled for a name for this girl, so I posted on Facebook, and my Mum of all people came up with a perfect name……..are you ready?
The pecking order has finally been worked out, Chloe is still top chicken!
Even more exciting….We got this a few days ago!
