I can't believe how well behaved and quiet they are! I'm sure that won't last! :roll:

I watched big brother and kept looking out the window as it was going dusk.

After it was over I went out to put them to bed and they were already in bed, as quiet and as good as anything! Ahhh bless. They are really, really cute!

I may give them a bit of sweetcorn tomorrow afternoon for being so good! You never know i may even have an egg for breakfast - hubby is waiting in hope! Omlet man did think that Rita was laying and possibly Audrey. It will be a while with Blanche yet as she has only goit little tiny points for her comb and it's really pale. She's my baby!

The cat ' Holly' is in tonight too, on my bed. She is so scared of the chooks!


I wonder what tomorrow will bring. Oh and yes.....I did literally watch them all day. They are fascinating - hubby & neighbours love them too!

Glad to see your eglu and hens arrived. They sound gorgeous! It surprised me, how quiet and sweet natured the chickens are. Those pink eglu's are so cool :!: My husband didn't want a pink one, but the blue one we got is nice too. A word of warning- Your housework will suffer as a result of either being glued to your new pets outside or being on here, chatting :!:

Any-way sounds like your doing great- keep up the good work :!:

No eggs yet - only one without a shell this morning in the nest box.

They keep making greeting noises when we go near them, it's lovely.

They do have a spot of the trots, but so would I if I was getting used to new surroundings. I looked for some Oats at the supermarket, but they had none left. Does anything else thicken them up? I have got weetabix and bran flakes in?

thanks for the info - the poops are all normal & as they should be! They seem very happy chooks and Audrey thanks us with an egg a day since 2nd July! :D

Rita's laid 2 and then decided to take a break!

Blanche is still studying whilst Audrey lays, she not quite old enough yet, but she wants to learn....her poor little comb is so tiny! :D

I couldn't imagine life without the chooks now, think I'll always have some chickens!

Hubby adores them and always comes in with some veg for them when he's been out & about!
