    Hey everyone, I am Kate
    This is all new to me this week and I wanted to share the first few weeks of me and my lovely for ladies settling in and getting to know each other! so where to start....
    me and my family have been lucky enough to be blessed with a wonderful big back garden and I have always dreamed of owning my own flock and finally decided to take a leap in to managing a flock!

    My Ladies (not yet name)
    • Breed - they are Lohman Brown - really lovely,friendly and very easy going bird!
    • Age - we believe they are around 6 months - but that what the previous owner said but he sounded very unsure, so anyone could tell me the ages of these ladies, it would be fab :)

    Where I got my flock!! -
    well the flock came to us, so we weren't even planning on getting chickens, just checking out coops online and stubble across a very good and pretty much brand new coop on Ebay, it was on auction but i told my husband to be cheeky and see what the person would take to take it down and sell it to us! they lived pretty local and he agreed to sell to us, he also told us that there were 4 chickens that came with it but he couldn't advertise them, due to being (livestock) - he inform us they were happy laying chickens and he didn't want them to become a waste due to him being the only one eating the eggs in the family!

    Week 1 - So this week has been just getting to know each other and understanding what they like to eat and personalities, they have been very happy and we have got eggs every day since they have been with us! I have learnt a lot this week, like chickens in my eyes are the goats in the bird world XD will try to eat everything and anything lol and also they love the rain! they mocked me as i was trying to get them in from the rain, I am the end I gave in and left them to enjoy they wet weather!

    Pictures -
