On the 24th of January this year mum and dad picked up our 6 chickens that grandma and grandpa got dad for a late 40th birthday present.
On the 14th of April (Good Friday) we found our first egg in the laying box (which dad thought was “egg-cellent” but he was only “yoking”…. ha ha ha).
We have tried our eggs that we have found in the laying box and they are… “eggs-traordinaryly” yummy!
The names of our chickens are:
- Princess Layer
- Red Dog
- Hen Solo
- Cheeky Chick
- Chicken Nugget
They love the grass and weeds that we have grown for them in their yard.
Dad has automated the chook house so we know the temperature and humidity all the time, and their door opens at a set time after sunrise and closes a set time after sunset.
We also have a green LED light when it’s open and a red one when it’s closed!
We love our chooks.
