We got ourselves some chickens a week or two back and they have settled in so nicely.
They are about 2 months old so not laying as yet, but they have already grown enormously just in the short time we've had them!
So far they have provided endless entertainment, from catching worms, crickets & grasshoppers to feed them, to teaching them to go "home" to their coop at night, so learning how to catch them, and watching how they run when you call them...and just generally watching them busy themselves around the garden.
The children have really taken to them and the other day I caught sight of them, chicken under arm, walking about and just had to take some snaps. Apparently they were taking Princess on a walk around the property :)
