Chicken Tuesday

Have just been to collect my 12 new hens form the chicken factory, £1 each,
They were due to be slaughtered at the end of the month.
here they are checking out thier new home,
and exploring outside 

eventually they will get the run of the allotment, once they settle in.


  1. Lucky chickens! Weirdly enough I was supposed to be buying a few from a friend of mine yesterday who runs a chicken farm. Sadly I didnt get around to building their house so they have gone for 'processing'. Poor little blighters, I really cant wait to get some though. I just checked out Tim Minchin on U tube, and watched the Storm animation. I havent heard of hime before but he is so funny (and so right!).

  2. Aww what a shame you didn't get the chucks!, when the bloke was putting these in the crate, one escaped and ran back into the flock, so it missed out on being saved :(
    Glad you enjoyed listening to Tim, look out for his other poem 'Angry (feet)'. Make sure you listen to 'you grew on me', I love that one, gives me goosepimples, lol. x

  3. Oh, my goodness! You've got the real thing! Look at all these cute little chickens and I thank you so much for bringing them to my party.
    I hope you'll pop in to see me again sometimes.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  4. What a hen party you have going there - hope they all adjust to their new home well.

  5. How nice that you can rescue hens that are due to be slaughtered.Lucky hens.
    Are they still laying? It would be lovely to have fresh eggs.
