A Cottage in Clarkville


(Chicken) Class of 2011

After the loss of our last lot of chooks we took the chance to give the chicken coop a really good clean out. With the help of some HelpXers we got it all cleaned out, scrubbed with disinfectant, laying boxes painted, and even some insulation and lining added to a couple of walls. After a new load of wood shavings on the floor it was all ready for some new occupants, and so the new girls arrived yesterday. Five are here at the moment, with one more to join them on Monday. They are 21 weeks old and just starting to lay, we got 2 (small) eggs this morning so that is a great start.

It looks like they are going to be very happy. Look at that lush thick sawdust. I won’t let our ladies see or they’d pack there bags and move in with you.

The girls look good, I hope I meet them when I’m there next and not be a part of their farewell! Go the eggs šŸ™‚
