And…. She is back!

After a short (long) hiatus I am back and very happy to be 🙂

There have been many things happening in our household while I have been gone but will fill in first one of my favourite things.

We have chickens! FINALLY!!!
Have only been asking to get some for years now and finally The Husband gave in (well was not really given much of a choice since I bought a coop)

We have 3 beautiful girls who moved in just over a week ago and have already started regular laying! We had 1 egg on the first day and then they started again on Thursday just gone. Friday my clever girls layed 2 eggs and then we have one more today.

I can not wait for them to be able to have some free range time on the weekends (or weekdays when The Husband is home) as they love grass and its already getting to be a pain having to pick it for them each day. Thankfully they appreciate it and they are gorgeous so I dont mind doing it.

So because I know photos are the best part I do of course have a few to share.

The Girls House

The Girls themselves!

Our first egg!

Its been a long time coming but I am so very happy that I finally have some chickens.
Now to get back to our simple living and enjoying life.


So did you miss me?
