The star of the show

She-who-shall-not-be-named has done it again.  I now have two lovely blue eggs. Is it weird that none have actually laid an egg in the nesting box yet? She’s quite the exhibitionist and likes to do it in plain site of her sisters, right in the middle of the run, but who’s judging!  I think she’s showing them why she’s leader of the pack, head pecker (you know, in the pecking order of things), and why she gets to eat first…  she’s small but fierce!

Now what can I make with two eggs and a courgette?


An hour later….

I went with the Omelet!  It wasn’t pretty (my omelets never are), but it was delicious.  Now for the season finale of The Handmaid’s Tale.  Oh Joseph…why are you the bad guy?

Cluck cluck cluck… almost!

Tomorrow’s the big day. I have an appointment to see some chickens in Oxford! I could be coming home with some new additions to my little family…

I finished putting up the coop tonight. Check out this fuschia beauty:

I still want to build a bigger enclosed chicken run to give them some more room to roam around in. But this will be their starter home.
