About 6 weeks ago we were given the honour of fostering a friend's chooks for 6 months while they get some serious work done on their backyard. In addition to the eggs they give us every day, we also get to watch them as they potter and scratch around the backyard.
I especially enjoy watching Maisie.
I think Maisie is one of the best looking chooks around! I have no idea what breed she is, but she's lovely. And she's been our best layer! The other two are Isa Browns, which are also rather nice to look at, but Maisie is special.
Sleep update: Apparently 5 hours but it felt like about 2. Being chucked on twice (including a projectile vomit up the sleeve of my polar plus jacket - good aim it seems), which required a complete baby change (waking her up again) and mother change made for a rather challenging night. Hopefully tonight will be better!
