I've been chicken shopping- too excited for words!! It was a lovely drive out in the countryside on this gorgeous bright spring day

and the result is 3 lovely new ladies who have come to stay.
I would like you to meet:

Bluebell- she is a Bluebell hybrid so not very imaginative with the naming but it suits her- she should lay dark brown eggs

Daisy- she is a Speckledy and should lay brown speckled eggs

and last but not least Sweetpea - she is a White Star hybrid and should lay white eggs

the girls are getting to know each other in Riley's stable while I finish fencing and hen house cleaning.

But for now the kitchen beckons - MrP has requested brownies - how could I say no?? All that chocolate melting and lovely smells.
More from the new chickens soon...

Lovely! My daughter & her family keep chickens & keeps all the rest of us in fresh eggs. Hope they lay soon for you...xxx

They are very pretty girls! I love that you'll know who lays which eggs, I can never tell! I've not seen a white egg for years.
