We have chooks!
Friends of ours are doing a major renovation of their backyard, so we're looking after their four chooks for six months. They arrived at lunchtime yesterday, and seem to have settled in very well, already giving us two eggs!
I'm not sure what breeds they are, but three are what I think might be Isa Browns, and the other is a lovely speckled dark brown one. While it will take a bit of time to get used to including the minimal chook-care tasks into our day, it seems we will very quickly benefit from the eggs, reduced food waste and toddler entertainment value!
