Say hello to... the chickens

This is a picture of some of my chickens. I currently have 4 Rhode Island Red, 1 new Hampshire, 2 white silkies and 3 black pekin bantams. They all get on wonderfully and help to keep weeds and grass down around trees.
The RIRs and the New Hampshire I hatched myself (along with another new hampshire which died - see previous post entitled 'dead chicken') whilst I got the silkies and the pekins through a friend. I have had the RIRs since June and I found 4 was just not enough I always buy the local farm newspapers to keep an eye out for a bargain.

My coop is big enough for a few more birds and when its full, well... another coop isn't going to cost much to build is it? ;) If you dont have much space in the garden it doesn't matter because they dont take up much room get some and you will never regret it!
