The chickens arrive...
Well, the day finally arrived, and there was no way to contain the excitement of the children (and the parents!).
The 4 of them need to stay in the chicken house for the first 3 or 4 days to get used to the new surroundings and then they can start exploring their chicken run.
So allow me to introduce them:
Defender (after Land Rover Defenders)- the greyish Speckeldy
Lester (after Lester the chicken on Big Barn Farm)- the black Nera
Sarrie (after Saracens rugby team)- the Amber
Henny Penny (after Henny Penny)- the pure white White Leghorn
Not run of the mill names I know and let's just hope that the poor ole chickens can cope with the embarrassment!
Now doubt that the next few days will be filled with lots of new and wonderful learning curves.
That's all for now...
