We brought home our two temporary chooks today! They’re on loan from my sister in law, and we take them back at Christmas. I can’t imagine an interstate move with chooks!
The larger brown one is named Betty, and the smaller black/brown one is named Boo. Betty Boo…. Dian named them. The pic was taken about fifteen minutes after being put into their run, they have since totally denuded the grass and stripped all the leaves off the weeds. Insatiable eating machines these things… The run they are in is a narrow strip up between the garage and the fence. They’ll be locked in there for a few days to a week, to get used to roosting in the shelter there, and after that we’ll start letting them out into the backyard during the day.
