Introducing our ladies

What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, are two Frizzles, one ISA Brown and a Black Australorp. We’re thrilled to welcome them home. The wonderful Ingrid at CityChicks (whose services I highly recommend) helped me to pack my tiny car with two children, four chooks, a bale of hay, a bag of mash, a double nesting box and sundry chook treatments.

We’ve already had one escape; when the door of the ‘house’ happened to be shut at roosting time, our Australorp went in search of a dignified perch. Fortunately, Tony found her in the garage sitting on the mower. Being on the adorable side, the Frizzles (‘Cribbles’, ‘Fiddles’ or ‘Squiggles’ as they are known here) have endured a good deal of cuddling on their first day. But they don’t seem to mind.

    Hey Rosie – I love those new chooks of yours, especially the fluffy ones. I can’t wait to find out their names! It will be really exciting when they lay their first egg for you to collect and eat.

    Love from Grandad

    That sounds and looks great! I’d love to have some animals around me, too. But in a flat in the middle of a city only tomatoes on the balcony are possible. Enjoy your eggs for breakfast (our custom is to have them on saturday morning together with fresh rolls and the weekend newspaper).

    I LOVE the Frizzles! You make me want to go out and get one myself. Is 5 eggs a day too many for two people?! So glad to see them in their gorgeous new home. Xxx

    Two a day id too many for us! However – a business opportunity might arise. I reckon Hobartians will pay big money for “Lindesfarne Organic Googies” sold on consignment through The Common Ground store!

    I am suffering, “chook envy,” Ally!
    Would so love some “girls,” but just don’t think one very tiny back garden (we have moved into our townhouse) and a rather adventurous Pug, go together!
    So enjoying your blog again. (have been without Internet for 2 weeks!)
    Love Gerri..xx!
