Chicken news

1) West Lothian Council have no bye-laws to prevent the keeping of poultry at domestic properties, provided they are not for business use. (Just the neighbours to placate now.)

2) New coop, feed, dust bath, mite powder, feed and water dispenser, grit and fake rubber egg have been purchased on t'internet and were dispatched this morning.

3) Local Animal Feed Merchant has been sourced.

4) Local chicken breeder has been located (but yet to be contacted.)

5) All 4 books in the library on poultry keeping have been read cover to cover in the pursuit of absolute knowledge.

5) The names of our potential chickens have been chosen. However, names will not be revealed until such time as the chicken have been purchased and formally introduced.

I like Gordan Ramsey's names for his pigs on the F word....trinny and Susannah! What about an internet competition to name one of them? Let us name one please! What about corb and mies? Or Zaha or Gehry. Amused me.
