Hi all, Yep, i'm back again! We've been busy building a veranda over our deck and it is now finished - and just in time for heaps of rain, which we've been getting (45mm)! The grass turned from brown to green overnight! Now hubby is in the process of buying some materials for our 2.4 x 3.6m chook shed which he will start next week (while i am busy here at work!) After 4 1/2 years of saying to our friends and family 'yes, we will have chookies one day', it looks like it will finally be happening soon! Question is: What type of chooks does everybody have? And why that type? We are thinking of Isa Browns. Hubby seems to think they will suit us best. Well, just thought i would keep in touch and 'pick your brains' once again, Health and happiness to all . . . Cheers Lyn p.s Yummmmm - fresh eggs!
