I know you are all just hanging out to hear how the chickens are going.... for your information they are going very well - even the poor chicken who I thought would never make it is strutting around thinking she is pretty special. They have all moved naturally from sleeping in the nesting boxes when they were smaller to perching on their roosts each night (sorry Heather, I really do think you were taken in!) and seem to be surviving this hot, humid summer..
I think chickens are really similar to humans in many ways - mainly when it comes to puberty. I love listening to boys as their voices change, and chickens are even better as you know when they go from the cheep cheepy cheeps to the deeper, louder cluck cluck cluckety cluck that you have got eggs on the way. Today we got the biggest haul of eggs yet - 12 in total. The fridge is starting to fill up so I guess we may need to start selling them again soon. I love having fresh eggs every day!
