Sadly my small flock of beautiful chooks has been reduced to only three – blame foxes and an illness. These are Isa Browns, egg laying machines really, whose lovely big brown eggs pay for their food. Economies of scale dictate that I need to get the numbers up again, so this coming weekend I plan to purchase three more point of lay hens at the local Farmer’s Market. Yesterday I sat on a flowerpot inside the chook run to take these shots. I love their vibrant colours and feather markings, they look so shiny and soft.
