    Red face Meet our new family members!

    I thought I'd join in and announce our newest family members....


    Henny

    and


    Penny

    They're gorgeous - they reward us every day with 2 fresh eggs. They come running upto the back door when we open it and they follow us around the garden... They're really tame too, love being stroked and picked up and will even voluntarily sit on your lap if you're sat on the ground... The other day they came in through the back door and I was sat watching TV on the floor with these two chickens (one on either side of me) sat watching TV with me - weird! LOL

    How is everyone? Anyone got any pictures of pets they want to share?

    They are beautiful!!! I just got 45 egg layer hens here at work. We take blood samples from them every 2 weeks to test for a virus that is spread by mosquitoes and is detected in birds first. It is just a little poke in their wing vein and they are really well behaved.

    They are brown like yours, and they give us the most beautiful eggs (and lots of them!) every day. I love them. When the program is over in the fall, we find homes for them. I think they are already all spoken for! If the bylaws would change so that residents could keep them within city limits, I would certainly take one or 2 home. They follow us around and talk to us- they are very smart!

    Congrats on the new arrivals !!!
