Chickens.


I finished the chicken coop/henhouse a week past Sunday and on the Monday, Sandra and I went to see a breeder to buy some point of lay hens.

These are called Light Sussex and cost just £10 each. They were much bigger than we expected, and have been laying 4-6 eggs per day between them. The eggs mostly have two yolks of a very deep orange colour and taste great. I have'nt let them out yet but over the next few weekends I'll let them out for a short while in the evening to see if they are happy to come back when it gets dark. Watch this space.............

Wow - those are some nice lookin' chickens!

P.S. I hope to catch a Pike or two while I am camping and canoeing next week... :-)

Cheers,

I miss fresh eggs, but the shop I frequent as next best, almost 'fresh'
