Keeping Chickens

this book is great fpr ideas of chicken and people friendly gardens: "Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard" by Kate Baldwin.  On the quagmire subject, I have a run, but also a Cube with attached run with a clear plastic cover, so they have a nice dry area in the rain - my Brahmas need it with their feathered feet!

I started 4 years ago with 2 hybrids, a gingernut ranger and Miss Pepperpot, Ivy and Lux. We recently moved to a bigger garden (the house is secondary!) and added 2 dark Brahmas, Misery and Dolores.  Sadly, Lux had to be put to sleep last week, but we get at least 2 eggs a day. The Brahmas are massive birds but lay teeny eggs! I would never be without hens now, they are so worthy of a place in anyones garden. I will definately stick with Brahmas, I love their size, they are very tame and I love their feathery feet!
