    How exciting Caroline! It’s something I would love to do someday as well. Looking forward to hearing how you get on!

    I was looking forward to getting the chickens but never realised just how interesting they would be. After a day at work, it’s a great antidote to the general running-aroundness to just let them out into the garden and watch as they mooch around, chatting amongst themselves. And you’re right Martin – the eggs are AMAZING!

    Nana certainly was kept busy – and kept us busy too! You’ll have to call over and meet the girls the next time you’re nearby. There might even be a few eggs in it for you…
