we have grown quite fond of our chickens.
it took us a while (longer than i thought it would) to name them all.
julia who is a brown isa was named first after our prime minister julia gillard. it suits her as she seems to be the leader.
then there is mavis who is also a brown isa.
esmay, rosemary and lavender were named last. they are the black australorps and are a little harder to distingish between as they all look much the same.
whenever they see us coming with some greens from the garden or the compost bucket they come scurrying up to the fence. they don't like being picked up at all but we can get them to eat from our hands now and then.
they haven't started laying any eggs as yet.
