Well, after the Otto dog killed of 5 chickens, we were left with three girls that weren't yet laying.
Otto went away to live with his uncle & soon after eggs started appearing. Perhaps they were waiting until they felt safe.
They're now giving us three eggs a day, six days of the week. Lovely little chookies, they are.
Every morning Huckle collects them & carries them in his basket.
Still to this day, no egg has been harmed. He is a very careful little man.
Do you have chickens? I really do recommend them. Delicious eggs, pest control (we haven't seen a snail since we've had them) & free manure for the garden.
When we move up town, we'll be sure to move to a council that allows chickens. Most Melbourne councils allow up to 6 chickens before requiring a permit. I'm determined to take a little "country" with us.
I hope you Sunday is lovely.
