The chickens turned up yesterday. The kids were excited from first thing in th morning. Jacob was up and ready at about 7am, he was going to “watch out” for the chickens delivery; which we already knew would be about 2pm!
They turned up around 3pm. The nice man from Omlet built the Eglu and then gave us the run down on looking after our new egg machines.
They seemed to settle alright; got a little agitated at around 10pm when then couldn’t quite work out where to roost. I placed a torched in the Eglu ( as the nice man had suggested ) and that seemed to do the trick. We decided to close the door on them while they get themselves sorted and into a routine.
Rebekah was still awake and watching them from her bedroom! She was also up at 5am to open the door and let them out!

Ah, chickens. Reminds me, I really ought to write down my experiences with those. Those creatures are mindnumblingly stupid and very much fun 🙂
(And remember, their brains (!) are solar powered. Without light, they go to sleep)
