Every year I try to do a Chicken Stocktake, just to get down on the blog the chicken numbers and types we have and the names of the chooks in residence, so here is this years.
1 Lavender Pekin Bantam Cockerel - Jack
2 Lavender Pekin Bantams - Poppy and Daisy
1 Light Sussex - Harriet
On the left representing the 2 Skylines - Dolly, we also have Enid
On the right representing the 4 Rhode Rocks - one of 'The Welsh Girls
On the left representing the 3 Black Marans - one of 'The Gang'
On the right 1 Bluebell - Belle
In the nesting box where she pretty much likes to be all the time 1 Hyline hen - Mother Goose
1 Black Maran Bantam - Tiny
1 Black Pekin Bantam - Ebony
And finally, as usual bustling about in Chicken World, she never seems to sit still except to lay an egg - another Lavender Pekin Bantam - Jill (Jacks sister).
So a total of 18 Chickens
17 girls and 1 boy
... a Jack Russell Terrier ;-)
