Chickens

4th April 2011

As a child our family always kept chickens, cleaning out their coop used to be my job.  

Still, this never stopped me wanting to keep chickens of my own one day and I knew shortly after moving here to Riverside Cottage I would be able to resume my hobby.

Simons parent loaned us an incubator, but several parts later and many months of disappointment I decided to buy day old chicks.

Each week I trawled the local paper and found a local breeder who sold me 6 day marans; a pair of leghorns and a light sussex.  

A lady who was moving house placed an ad to sell her 6 Silkie (Lavender &  Multiple Penciled).
