yes :)

Its definetly the sort of thing I'd have if we lived somewhere else.

Unfortunately I could probably imagine the local neds having one on a spit over the nearest bin they've set on fire.

Would also love to grow my own veggies.
#23
one of my sisters chickens is deaf, but its the friendliest out the lot......more like a faithful dog than a chicken :)

Bits was it your sis was looking for a temporary home for chicks a while back? Glad to see the rescue ones doing so well!

Knew someone with geese. Their eggs are enough for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or a large family.
Lovely pics
#27
This is gonna sound silly but how do you know the eggs they lay aren't chicks?

Like you obviously have had some that have been chicks because of the photos up there.

I'd be too scared to crack the egg, or is there a way you can tell?

hens lay eggs regardless if they have a male or not,many ppl just have hens and no cockerels so the eggs are never fertile

however if you have a cockerel running with your hens you can still enjoy fresh eggs or incubate them and let them grow into chicks:thumbsup:

...and now they're everywhere.:thumbsup:

Strange how what goes around, comes around. When I was little all the grans and grandads had chickens and many had a pig or two as well. Then no-one ( well no-one I knew!!) had hens for years and now quite a few people do, again.

Ok, see I always thought that every egg had the potential to turn into a chick, so thats right?
