I went to feed my two chooks this morning at 6.20am. Just in time to see one laying from the perch. I even saw it fall. I have layers of sawdust underneath so a nice soft landing. Another month I think that habit will be broken

Sometimes you win big, sometimes it's the little things that make you smile. Today for the first time my two hens both laid their eggs in the nesting box. Mrs Pink had been laying them off the perch before first light. Mrs Green has been laying her eggs a little later in the day and her eggs are usually in the nesting box. Their names come from the colour of their leg bands. With only two chickens I'm now getting enough eggs for the two of us with a few to give away and it's not costing me a fortune to feed them. They also get to get out of their coop for a couple of hours each afternoon without causing headaches in my vegie garden. I am hardly The Chicken Whisperer but I'll take that little win!
