So after making the decision to keep Chickens my better half and myself decided that we needed to go for rescue chickens.  Not the prettiest, not the best eggs, but chucks that really deserve a better life, and I have to say it's one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life they are wonderful.

We have 4 Chickens which we picked up on the 3rd of September 2011.  In the first 4 days we have had 11 eggs.

This is my first egg....

What is going to happen to our chickens in the long run?  Well eventually they will stop laying get old and die!! Whilst they are doing this we will pick up some more rescue chickens and try to keep our brood at 10 or less hens.  When they stop laying they can just plod around eating to their hearts content and die of old age.
