We have eggs!

Postby moonsunstars2 » Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:49 pm

We were given some Chickens about 3 months ago. They were a *rescue* of sorts.

They came to us in a Double Rabbit Hutch, barely let out, rarely uncovered during the day, and not laying at all.

In the couple of months we've had them, we make sure they are well looked after, fresh food/water, cleaned out, plenty of hay for nesting etc. And 10 days ago we got our first eggs from them :D :yahoo:

Last week our (their) new home arrived and by last Sunday they were in and settled :D We got them this one:

They have been laying ever since and are now laying 2 a day :D!!! So pleased :D, I guess they must be happy now so nice to know we're doing it right! (We've not had chickens before).

I love their characters, And B loves them too! They get the pleasure of B diggin up worms for them at every opportunity!

Yay fantastic. We have 5 chickens and all are laying at the moment, even the silkie which is a breed that is notorious for being poor layers :-?

Fantastic that they have settled in so well. I'm really jealous, I would love to have chickens but its not really practical in a terraced house with small concrete yard.
