Chooks and the shack

For years "chooks and the shack" was the welcome message on my mobile phone (back in the day when we turned them off)

2 years ago we moved into "the shack", and a month ago we welcomed "the chooks" onto our little plot.

4 x 10week old Australorp chickens now live with us, currently learning how to scratch up the ground. They will hopefully be laying their first eggs on Christmas morning. I'll accept this first laying up to mine and R's birthday in early January.
