I've fallen terribly behind (again), and hope to catch up over the next few weeks.


I keep chickens (or chooks, as we call them here in Australia). Here is a pic of three of my girls, one laying pullet and two just approaching lay (our older hen is moulting, so she's off sitting in the sun and feeling sorry for herself)...

And the yummy little treat (only the one on the left is real, the other is a ceramic egg) the black chook gives us each day...


Apparently chickens are much happier with a rooster around to protect them, find them yummy things to eat, and generally make them feel safer. However, they also love to crow (all night long!), make the hens more likely to go broody and encourage them to hide their eggs, so meet Tinny, our very well behaved and very quiet rooster...

And here he stands guard over his girls from his spot in the herb garden...
