You'll never guess

What the anti-chicken asked this morning.


We were reading the BHWT newsletter (which was dead fiddly to print off for her!) and talking about the ex-batts we are going to get in March.


Then she suddenly askeed - how many hens to we have accomodation for?? I told her we could probably squeeze 14 into the Cube and the Eglu (yes we still have both - for 3 hens). And she pondered this for a while before saying she wouldn't want that much poo in the garden! I did mention oh you won't be too upset if I go to get 3 ex batts and come back with more then. She didn't actually answer that one.


This was after a discussion about who we can give our eggs away to this weekend - we are both on Lighterlife and James is resisting an eggy breakfast so we have 3 hens and no egg eaters!!! In the summer we are going to start selling them at the gate - just hope some people bother to stop.

Trouble is they do like to spend a lot of time on the patio outside her backdoor - there is always more poo there than anywhere else! All over the garden isn't a problem.


Mind you my friend - when he brings his kids over is always yelling "mind the poo". I guess his DOG never poos in the garden when they are at work all day and don't get home till after dark.

She was saying again this morning how we better keep the Eglu if we are going to have 12 hens!


I think she's settled on a number in her head. She's also getting the handyman to extend the run (Which our chooks are NEVER in!)
