We have just been away on holiday to Scotland, leaving the chickens in the trusty care of our neighbour. They seemed happy enough when I poked my head in this evening, so I hope they have had a good week. Before we went away we had a huge number of eggs in the fridge, so having given 6 away to a friend, I put the remainder in a basket and sent the two eldest children off round the street to see if any neighbours wanted any. They seemed well received - everyone who was in took at least some eggs, so I hope they were all enjoyed. The children really enjoyed taking them round and it was lovely to see how confident they were knocking on the doors and handing out eggs.
