I’m afraid I can’t show you photos of my new girls, who I picked up this afternoon . . . the breeder told me to put them in the coop, with food & water, and leave them in peace & quiet for 48 hours while they settle. I’m following instructions, although I have opened the little hatch just in case one is adventurous enough to want to look outside. For the moment, no, they’re happy to stay indoors.
This means, I can’t take any photos, but I assure you, the hen house now has three very plump tenants.
One of whom has already laid an egg ^^ Yay! The “girls” were very calm and quiet during the car drive home. Not really stressed at all. A few clucks to punctuate the journey, and when I opened the travel boxes, I found this
not the egg cup, obviously lol, but our first egg!
Perfectly formed, somewhat speckled and very pale compared to the shop-bought eggs I have in my fridge
but it will be the taste of what’s inside that counts !
Stay tuned, I hope to be able to do an official introduction very soon.
