An other nest of eggs, hatching eggs and a broody Isa

Lots of thing have happened in the world of chickens today.

First of all when we went out to elgin and got some pellets. But just as we got to the top of the drive I saw a hen! She was laying an egg (about the 20th). When we got home it was fine a few hours later Gerry found the broody she is in a den thing with dead trees over her as the frame and sticks as the roof. I found a better place but I'm not moveing her.

Soon after tea (dinner) (supper) We bought eggs for her to mum. I got salmon faverolles Gerry got cream legbars and Lucy got anconas (like leghorns)


  1. We are so excited about having chicks - must get a broody house and run set up soon.... the clock is ticking!

  2. Wow, are you going to breed your own chicks?

    That will be a big responsibility and lots of little mouths to feed.

    Hope it all goes well.

    We have three chickens here. Betty (big, bossy, black hybrid), Lulu (little Norfolk Grey) and Cindy (white and black, Egyptian Fayoumi, the best eggs).

    I look forward to hearing more of your chicken news.

  3. You mean that I'm going breed from my own cock?
    Well one is going to have kujo chicks (my cock kujo)
    But the isa is going to have some hatching eggs from ebay.

    How many of your chickens are laying? Is betty a rock? i think Gerry told me that some rocks are hybrids. What's a egyptian fayoumi? I'll get my chicken book out if i can find it.
