Two consecutive chicken posts I'm afraid as we have the excitement of the first egg.
The egg was fried and then cut into quarters so that we could share it and agree with my husband that it was definitely the best ever egg!
I was pleased to learn from the comments to my last post that the chickens would be fine if we let them out of the coop. They had their first taste of freedom this afternoon and seemed to thoroughly enjoy pecking everything in sight. At the moment they are still happily wandering round the garden but I am hoping they will take themselves home to roost soon as the light fades.
