One of my girls

This is one of the three chickens that I keep in the garden. They have a large run which is full of bark for them to scratch around in, but if we aren't using the garden (they are a bit messy) I let them out to have a scratch around and get rid of all the bugs.

During the summer I get three eggs a day, but in the winter due to the reduced light levels we only get maybe one or two. Everybody who has tasted the eggs says you can really tell the difference and the yolks are bright yellow without the introduction of colouring which you would sometimes find in some shop bought eggs.

They are really easy to keep, fascinating to watch and I would recommend them to anyone.
