I know that I have been really bad at posting recently. There has just been so much to do! blogging is my little luxury so sometimes gets pushed down the to-do list :(
Because of all the eggs that we have been getting, the kids get to cook egg sandwiches more often. I have never eaten eggs as fresh as these before and see a definite difference - with our fresh eggs, the yolk sits much higher when broken in the pan and the white is a lot thicker, another difference, one that I have a slight problem with, is that while I am eating the egg the kids will tell me who layed it :P Look at what our clever hens produced :)))
It feels wonderful to know that there will always be enough eggs for baking. It's like getting the milk delivered and learning how to make bread, it just feels good to know that the basics are always there.
Champ and Boo have been out so much with the chickens, that they younger two have started to play really well with each other. They have invented all sorts of fun games.
Kiki just LOVES her cupcakes :)
She even does the washing up!
I got the boys to work together to put up Champ's new cupboard for all his fossils and "stuff".
I supervised them a little but really wanted them to look at the instructions and work out how the pieces fitted together and then work as a team to complete it.
I was really impressed how they both got stuck in.
And I found a second hand coop for a very reasonable price. This one is for the chicks when they are old enough.
The ladies. They are allowed to roam free now and we often find them at the top of the field. It's so funny as they only go off in pairs, like little rotund ladies off for an afternoon walk :)
The ladies seem to approve of the new coop but only to play in, they still prefer their original coop to lay in and sleep.
Watching them eat an apple. Hermione was laying an egg in the coop at the time.
Matching boy and chicken :)
I hope the old ladies won't be ignored once the youngsters arrive...
