and introducing Sabine....

The coop is finally finished - right down to the sign:
The chickens are very happy these days, spending most of the day outside foraging for food and being happy. And, we have introduced a friend, Sabine.
 Sabine came from Karen's house and has settled in happily in her new home. 
She is the cutest little thing!
 We hope to get one more chook and then our family will be complete.
I'm off to enjoy the sunshine and to watch the poulets. 

au revoir

annoucing the safe and speedy arrival of our girls

Yesterday we finally bought our brand new chickens. 
For months, David has been working on the 'Ch√Ęteau des poulets'. He's managed to build almost the entire thing from people's waste (hooray for hard rubbish).
Meet Claudia (above) and Giselle (below) - our new babies.

The boys have been having so much fun with them trying desperately to make friends with them.

This is inside their house - with their roosts and nesting boxes. 
I can't wait to find my very first egg :)
