Hi I am Chloe and I am nine. We’ve got four chickens and my chicken is Perky. My chicken is totally the cheekiest. The naughty chicken is Penny because once we found a slug and threw it on the ground. Then Perky grabbed the slug and then Penny grabbed the slug off Perky. I think it […]
Hi I’m Millie and I’m seven. Here is a picture of Boo Boo. She is my chicken. This is a story about my chicken Boo Boo. Boo Boo is the youngest chicken and Roxy is the oldest one. All of our chickens don’t know their names yet. I like my chickens because they are crazy […]
Our lovely chickens can’t get enough of some leftover rice for lunch!
We caught the chickens in the act yesterday!! Here’s exactly how they pulled apart those straw bales and made such a mess. But they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Eggsciting news – our youngest chicken laid her first egg this morning. We thought she was acting a little strangely mid morning as she kept squatting in the back garden and puffing herself all up. She then disappeared into the coop and was making such a racket that Mike popped his head into the nesting […]
Oh our clever birds, they found their way onto the decking, though only Perky and Penny are usually brave enough to attempt it. It was funny this morning to pop out into the conservatory and see their little faces peering in! They can only just fit between the railings to get up. Boo Boo came […]
