Update on the chickens

It’s probably time for an update on the chickens. We had to return three of the previous four to the manufacturer (some friends in a group house called Smithfield) because their gender had been mis-determined and they were in fact male. We worked this out because of the complete lack of eggs, and the crowing at 4am. Now we’re getting an egg a day consistently, which is good given the little darlings that we have now are technically still too young to be laying.

Factoid for the day: male chickens like to sleep outside on a perch, whilst female chickens sleep inside the chicken house I built.
