All aboard for The Chook Mahal

Haven't our wee egg laying charges grown??? Not the cute wee fluffy folk they were here. We are still unsure if a couple are only masquerading as girls. Anyways - now they are much bigger and have feathers, it was time to relocate them to their new home - the exotic five star abode that is - The Chook Mahal. The chooks always scarper when Dunc or I head out to see them - but always reappear when Edie is on the scene. I think in addition to the swahili she has picked up, she is also speaking fluent chicken and thus they have accepted her as their kin. It became apparent that there was indeed a certain protocol that needed to be adhered to to ensure the move went 'by the book, book, book' (basil brush boom boom!)

1. All Chooks relocating must be approved by the chook whisperer - 'yep, undercarriage looks good'2. Quick spot of chook hypnosis to make transition to new abode less stressful before ...
3. Heading to the new Chook Mahal to wait for new guests ... let's get this rolling!
4. 'Welcome my feathered friend' - feed and water to your right, nesting box to your left, enter from rear or underneath.
5. Just checking they're settling in

he hee, cute, especially that last photo. Nothing beats an egg from your own garden and it's great always knowing you've got something you can have for dinner if you haven't had time to shop.

When I was five I used to feed invisible chickens... "Here chook, chook, chook."
