Chookie Woes....

Blogtober 12th

We have had chooks at our place for a couple of years now, and up till now we have had healthy, happy hens who entertain us with their clucking and scratching around. The last week or so we had a couple of sickies who died over night, I don't know what was wrong with them, maybe they were getting old and more vulnerable to picking up a bug. I hope the others stay healthy, it is really sad to see our girls unhappy and off colour. We have 9 left and so far they seem fine, so fingers crossed. On a happier note, they are definately back laying, we are getting 7 - 8 eggs a day, they are such good layers!

On the hooky front, I have started making some little crocheted buttons and am embroidering little things on them. The first one looks pretty cute so I am happy, it is nice to do something a bit extra to just plain crochet. When I make a few more I will try and photograph them and show you .

I hope you had a great day!


  1. Poor chookies ... I'll keep my fingers crossed that your lovely 9 hens will stay safe and healthy! ... They're certainly delivering bumper egg crops! :)

  2. oh that is sad.....such sweet little things chooks! I hope the others all stay well you must feel so self sufficient having fresh eggs daily as well as your lovely garden :)

    I'm so looking forward to seeing your buttons, they sound very interesting!

  3. Aw, I hope all goes okay and things improve soon.
