Today we bought a chicken coop and 3 brown laying hens.
They are to be delivered on Friday with feed, grit and bark - the full package!
There is much excitement in our house today since the kids were told. Sammy is hoping to chase the poor things but seems to have been placated by thoughts of collecting eggs.
The chicken coop has a run with it and can be moved around the garden as and when the grass dies. It is the sussex model, like in the picture and it can hold up to 6 hens.
Feeling a little bit nervous now!
