Well hello! Here we are again then ... Time for another update! Gonna bang straight in there ... A standard week with nothing too exciting. The feathery girls are settling in well! ... There are lots of videos within this so make sure you have time set by to watch them. That's alongside the usual picture over load I send you lol!
Monday 9th August:
Well all the kids want to do is touch these chickens! They wanted to get in the run with them yesterday but we said no as they were new and getting used to us. Today we allowed them to climb in with them with some corn. We had to time it right though as it's a showery day. Absolutely threw it down at one point and the poor chooks were sheltered at the back on the tyre from the rain blowing in.
It was soon time for chook holding practice. I don't want to hold them yet so hubby puts in the hard work lol!

Wednesday 11th August:
A short update for today. The day started with the kids fetching the eggs from the hatch.
One of the chickens laid an egg and did the egg song. Annoyingly she stopped as I went out but got a couple of bawks on video: https://photos.app.goo.gl/9qush9Q7upxNTAEh8
