Meet the Ladies

Since we live the quarter acre dream, we thought it was time we got some chickens.

Pictured top left is the first egg! Laid unceremoniously in the dirt, perhaps that was the chook's way of saying she didn't think much of the plastic storage cubes that we were trying to trick them all into using as nesting boxes. So Hubby built a lovely wooden nesting box and now everyone is happy.

We've had a few weird eggs, including a couple of giants double-yolkers, middle picture left-hand, and even some with soft shells, as per below.

And the chooks names? Henrietta, Henmione, Henna and Chiquita.
