Here chook chook chook

Dora wants "chooks". Just 2, not a poulty farm or anything. The old lady next door has been handing freshly laid eggs across the fence to the bambino and they taste like eggs should. Hence a family outing this morning in search of a hen house suitable for a suburban back yard. The choice is overwhelming, with some quite remarkable chook style architecture available (and price tags to match) so a little more research needs to be done, but Dora is sure there will be some productive additions to the family fairly soon. Dick's going along with it, he finds it easier that way.

Good luck finding a special house. My mum has been building one in our backyard, but it has been half finished for about 6 months. Sometime soon it will get a door and a paint job and maybe one day some sweet hens.

ps. we found an biggish old wooden crate and hammered weatherboards all around and put some tin on for a roof. It hasn't seen any fowl yet so not sure if they will like it. But any excuse to visit the tip shop might garner some inspiration for a DIY job. Dick?

definitely invest in some pet chooky girls. we love our four - 'dizzy dora, princess kiev, polly & ginger'. we made our chook 'hacienda' out of a huge cable spool. i'll try and post it in my blog for you this week. good luck.

Would love chooks here.

You have been busy, which is great to see. Sadly my great plug for you was edited out of the magazine... I tried. The rotters even took out the lionk to etsy.

I love the dress your own girl - she is fab.

Thank you for your lovely comments lately... We are getting there.

I can recommend Isa Browns. They've always done us proud. They have been a permanent fixture in our family since the year dot, always two, and always named Scarlet and Ginger (because of their rich rusetty colour). It's so good when you've nothing in the cupboard and can just go outside and find a warm egg.
