Chookens is our term of endearment for our little troup of ladies!
We have two 'layers' ISA browns, one little black hen, and 3 white Silky Bantams.
Our little black hen missed the paprazzi this morning as she is broody as...... well as a Hen I suppose.
Our silkies are delightful. They get painted (food colouring and brushes) they get pushed around in the pram, and they get smothered with love!
The children thought they had a french Couture appearance to them.
Those fluffy bottoms and feet do have a slighlty designer style.
Then our ISA Browns are Mrs Skinny Legs, and Mrs Giant feet.
I can't say we would buy ISA browns again, as they are slightly aggressive towards the other chickens, and the best escapees I am yet to meet. The Council have been around and warned us that a $100 fine per chickens out of its yard applies. Yikes. So we bought this bigger pen.
They do lay well though.
However once penned my silkies stopped laying so we have since separated them. The Silkies roam free and sleep here
And the spot I find all six of them on their afternoon peck is here - my kitchen garden.
