Happy Eggs.......

We love chickens!!! We currently have two chooks Blacki and Larki. They are very sploit they even try to get inside when it's very cold. Nothing beats fresh eggs in the morning, or for lunch. What is nicest about having your own chooks is all the food scraps go to them and you know exactly what they are eating. Eggs are best when the chicken has a varied diet. We do feed them grain, but there main diet is vegetable scraps and what they forage from our native gardens all day. I have seen them squabble over penny lizards. If hand raised they make rewarding pets for children and adults, i do love my chookies. xx

We raised our egg layers from a day old, and they are pretty friendly,letting us stroke their backs.
And you're right, the eggs are better because you know whats gone into them!

It's impossible to go back to store bought eggs. Yes they're great when their tame, my favourite is Blacki because she is black (big surprise) and her feathers are really shiny, also she is really vocal, popping into the house whenever she can sneak in for a good old chat....
