Introducing our new chickens....

Introducing the newest additions to our family, our 5 new chickens. It seems strange to only see 5 chicks wandering the pen but we only wanted a few as we are not sure when we are moving yet. I also added some pictures of the chicken coop for those who haven't seen it yet.

Introducing the young girls, MacNicol (the light one - Mrs MacNicol, I hope you don't mind that Harry named a chicken after you!!!!), Chalkey (front) and Aim (back)
The boys named these chickens!!!

Kevin's chicken (the black one) is Casey and mine, Patsy!!

I decided to do some baking today. I made Fresh Apple Cookies from my favourite Best of Bridge The Best of The Best cookbook. Although they don't look the greatest, they are really yummy. I also made a loaf of bread. I do love the smell of bread cooking in the oven.

Congratulations on your chickens! Ours certainly make life more interesting around here ;-)

I love the smell of fresh baked bread too... sometimes I think the smell even more than the taste!

I'm so honoured to have one of the new chickens named after me. They look like lovely chooks - may they lay you many nice fresh eggs.
