CHICKENS!

May I present:

Omelet, Scramble and Margo

Omelet is a Cream Legbar. She will lay beautiful pale blue eggs. She is apparently a rare breed. Scramble is a Leghorn (as in Foghorn) She will lay pure white eggs. Margo is a Cuckoo Maran. She will lay lovely dark brown eggs.
Here they are in the traveling box, just before we put them into their new house.

We have had them for 24 hours now, and they are still settling in. They are just 12 weeks old, which is why they don't have their combs and wattles yet, and look a bit skinny. They can't cluck yet, they still cheep like chicks which is very cute! It will be about 3 months until we get an egg but hopefully by then they will be tame instead of running away from us!

More pics to come soon. In the mean time Nick has some more snaps to keep you satisfied

Eleanor here. I assume that the misspelling of 'Omelette' was deliberate and arty....
