The husband has become the proud owner of three hens. He has allowed me to name one. I picked a Mrs Pepperpot and have called her Hetty. She’s already done me proud, laying an egg within a few hours of ownership.

Isn’t she beautiful! She is a bit noisy so I’m currently wondering if the neighbours have noticed…

Ned has become an avid birdwatcher, he can identify anything with two wings as a ‘duck’, so when the chickens arrived he was delighted and kept shouting ‘duck! look duck!’ at the top of his voice. It’s all very exciting. Lets hope we remain fox free.

    I sooo want chickens. We moved to Hertfordshire from Central London and I planned to get them, but, then I got 2 yappy jack russels who would probably stress out any self-respecting chicken to the point they'd never lay. I am a touch jealous.
