Chicken Nugget "Nugs"

This is "Nugget" who is a little bit different as she has not laid any eggs - but we love her just as much! She has a purple leg-ring and was enjoying the sunshine this morning after a frosty start!

Colour coded...

You may have noticed that we have "ringed" the hens to know who is who quickly - Emily quickly sketched up a chart for her Dad to show which colour ring each hen wears! They don't seem to mind the rings at all - we would have taken them off again if they did! 


It is -5 degrees this morning! We are pleased that our pasta for breakfast was warmed up! This is Chicken Licken...

We run around...

One runs we all run! 
Damp and wet in the garden we run around while the camera is in the warm and dry....not fair!

Gale alert!

The chickens have been blown around all day today! They ate quickly at lunchtime to stock up for the evening! They are safely in their bed now even though their fence has blown down!

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain...

Digging and sunbathing are the order of the day as the mid-November sunshine dries up the rain of the last few days...

Grey day again...

Miserable day today for the hens...mostly under the bushes...but when the eggs were collected they came to see what was going on!

November is here...and more sunshine!

Taken through the patio window, this is one of the chickens enjoying the November sun breaking through the autumnal mist this morning. The ring on her leg is so that we can easily tell which one is which! We put them on last week and they do not seem to mind them at all.
