The ladies have arrived!

You might remember back here, we started to build a chook house.

Over the last couple of months, it's taken shape, based on the building materials we found, scrounged and nicked from building site rubbish piles.

With the addition of some hay, it was finally ready. 

We proud to introduce, on the left Nancy Bird Walton (a Chinese Silky) in the centre Alice Anderson and on the top right, Marion Bell, who are Australorps.

Bless them, they've given us these:

As well as giving us eggs, they'll eat most of the scraps we produce, and their poo will feed the soil.  It's very good, organic practice and everybody gets what they need from the system.
