Jean Gray has laid the first egg

First things the kids did this morning was pull on their wellies, and coats over their PJs and then straight into the garden to visit the chickens. Tried to manage their expectations- “there probably won’t be any eggs yet, the hens need to settle into their new home…”, eggopened the hatch with great anticipation and low and behold, Jean Gray was sitting on our first egg. Logan’s face says it all really.

Pancakes for lunch 🙂


New arrivals- chickens

Today we picked up our rescue chickens. They’ve been named Radar, Lulu and Jean Gray. Can you guess which one belongs to X-men mad Logan?

Hopefully we’ll start getting eggs soon. I’ll be including egg collecting in the daily routine- great learning for children and of course eggs can be used to make cakes 🙂
