I love my chickens

Our two younger chickens really love each other and hang out together all day. Madam is the white one and Chips the brown. One downside to chooks is chicken poo on the deck...yuck!

Above is Madonna, one of a pair of Isa Browns who we've had for about a year. Isa Browns are good layers! To her left is Madam and on the right is Rocky and Mary Poppins.

One of the great things about living in the country has been having chooks. Not only do they give us eggs and eat our scraps but there is also something so pleasing about having them around.

If you are thinking of keeping chickens then go for it! You don't have to live in the country, if you have a small yard you can still keep a couple. Chickens are so much fun, get a chook! check out this link...
