BLOG 23 ๐Ÿก Chickens are here๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ” 21st July 2017

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ” Chickens now in the family (Egg laying family members only) !!๐Ÿ” Pouring with rain we visited Manor Farm, only 15 mins away, ย luckily for us & them they were indoors. He had quite a few, different ages, we picked 4 aged 12 weeks, trying to catch them was fun, oh no not by us but the expert farmer ! Should hopefully start laying in around 6 weeks ๐Ÿ”, so looking forward to first egg, who’s gonna have that, me ?! ย Abbie held the box tight on the car journey home, little tweets coming out of the box, but they were fine, got home & straight into coop & run, not sure to come out at first but lovin’ it now ๐Ÿ”.ย 

Abbie has spent many hours in with them, even in the pouring rain under a cover, feeding from her hand, stroking them, handling them, they’re used to her already ! ๐Ÿ”

Their first morning was the perfect picture & they climbed up there themselves !ย 

Introducing Gwen….

Oh dear Smudge, have to keep away ! Toby is playing up too, fingers crossed they calm down eventually ! ๐Ÿ”

Brilliant photos taken by Abbie sitting in with them x ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”

Next move is to corner off the garden with fencing, put the coop & run behind it so the dogs realise they cannot reach the chickens & let the chickens have a good run around. ย So while they’re young they seem fine but planning soon to expand the area….๐Ÿ” and that will be another job sorted ! ๐Ÿ”

August…..Expanded the area for them, have lots to explore now !ย
