Chickens join the family

Saturday 22 November 2014, Written By John Churchley

Over the last few years I've always dreamed of one day having eggs provided by my own reared chickens. Today the dream came a reality with the arrival of 4 chickens to our new home. We decided on two araucanas (who lay blue eggs) and two partridge wyandotte (due to their beautiful textured feathers). Already they are showing there personalities one of the partridge wyandotte's is very loud and one of the araucanas naughty and not wanting to get to be bed or being caught! Watch this space for names as we can't decide on any yet but one will be mostly be named 'Chuck' and 'Jebediah'.
