1… 2…

Our chickens have hatched arrived, so I guess it's ok to count them now.

We went down to Myshall in Carlow on Sunday, to a poultry sale. It was quite something to see, I had no idea that it would be such a big event.

There were plenty of chickens, obviously.

Including some quite exotic breeds.

This rooster looked like he was on stilts. πŸ˜€

But there were also ducks and geese.

Pigeons

Songbirds

Rabbits

even goats.

Frankly, it was little overwhelming to a couple of novice chicken buyers, but eventually we found what we were after. A pair of Rhode Island Reds.

Mam gave them a good once over and was satisfied with their condition. And they were plenty lively, as we learned in the escape attempt while they were being boxed up. But once they were settled in their crate in the back of the van they settled down for the trip home.

The transfer to the coop went much more smoothly and though they were a bit leery of these strange new digs

They are well settled in now.

It will be 2-3 weeks before we start seeing eggs, stay tuned. In the meantime you can go and look at the rest of the album.
