Today I have been spending a bit of time getting ready for tomorrows arrival of 19 more chickens. 'Eggxtra' supplies were needed ready for for our expansion in the egg market, and more egg boxes required for the millions of sales were are 'eggxpecting' in the near future.
The chicken catching net is just a precaution, I don't like to use a net unless absolutely necessary as it scares the birds. I also ordered some more rubber eggs to go in the nesting boxes to give the new girls a hint at where to lay. I used to have a couple of nice china ones and a couple of rubber ones but someone......
mentioning no names.......... when she was a little baby puppy, instead of the big nusiance puppy she is now, ran off with them thinking they were odd shaped balls, and they have not been seen since.
We are setting off bright and early tomorrow morning to pick up the new girls, so I'll introduce you to them when they have taken up residence on the farm.
