Anyway, here are my much coveted, long anticipated girls - Daisy and Mabel. They are Australorps, bred by my 10 year old nephew. Tommy (the Border Collie) is self appointed minder. He takes his job very seriously. I get two eggs most days and the girls are very chatty and friendly. If you call me, and I don't answer, you can be pretty sure I am sitting down with the girls.
|Tom thinks working hens with the 'eye' works like it does on sheep - it doesn't!|
|They love their greens|
|They are trying to find a way to get to all that green stuff!|

|My first egg in the egg basket my Dad made me (after I showed it to him on Pinterest!)|
|Mabel, in front and Daisy behind. I had just turned over some soil and they loved it.|
|My daily gift from the girls .. their yolks are so big and dark yellow - makes perfect poached eggs.|
