...there's Tilly & Milly, Warrior Mark II and Hortense.
These are the new additions to the VK household: four Isa Brown hens who are now about 20 weeks old. We've been planning on getting some chickens for years, but finally got round to it this year and I love them to bits.
Unfortunately one of the original hens, Warrior (Husband's choice of name), became egg-bound and she had to be humanely killed because there was nothing that could be done to help her. That was a shame as she was a favourite from the start. Anyway, we now have Warrior Mark II who is such a loveable cheeky bird.

|Cute fluffy bottoms!|
|They love a scratch around the garden|
The girls are now laying an egg a day each, which is brilliant. They lay lovely brown speckled eggs and its great to be able to use them when cooking.
