Kooky Chooks

Just thought you might be curious. I tend to have a general 'No Waste' policy, not that you can control that all the time, and I love eggs. What does that equal? Chooks of course! Or chickens for those of you who aren't so sure what chooks mean ;)

Anyhow these are just the ordinary brown chickens. They're all hens, no roosters at the moment, not that you'd want any since they're noisy. Hens lay more in the summer than the winter. We previously had black ones and ducks but at the moment we also have silkies.

Interesting fact: turn a chicken on its back and it will appear hypnotised (although it is playing dead rather than hypnotised).


  1. You have chickens!!! I'm so jealous. :P

  2. LOL great photos! It's nice that you have chickens, my uncle has some too!

  3. @ Marce: Thanks! i think these photos are much better than a lot i take =P. have you tried the eggs? they are so much better than normal ones in the store!

    @ makeupper: sorry, i must have forgot to reply. they are a bit of work but so worth it in the end. most of the work comes in the maintenance of the coop. but when they get lice, it's very annoying!
