I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Sibling rivalry

We are two weeks old now and busy growing wing and tail feathers.

Yep, we are even growing little combs.

When I grow up I want to work in movies.


Oooo! You are such a tart, always flashing your fluffy  knickers!  I know what sort of movie you will end up in and it won't be a chick flick either.

 You are such a prude...always sticking your beak in the air.  I prefer to stick my parson's nose in the air. I'd be perfect for a remake of a Blues Brothers' movie...I can shake a tail feather.

 And I can really get into a role.  What about this questioning sparrow look?

That's nothing...look at my vulture act!

They are so frivolous!  They have no real life experience. I am still getting over the chicken abuse Henny dished out.  I nearly lost an eye and in the movies I would have to play character roles.  

Though my right profile is beautiful.

...and my beak is perky!

We know we are all henlets but 
we want to be roosters. 
We hear they have more fun, so we have been practising on the edge of the washing basket. 

Roosting, roosters, perching...get it?


  1. The little darlings, it's making me quite broody looking at them.I have in The Good Life raised chicks and goslings and become an honourary chook and goose, a great privilege and one of my proudest achievements!
    Congratulations on achieving honourary chook status!!

  2. They are so funny, each with their own little personality I bet, we lost another of our hand raised girls last week....which leaves one, Flo, and our elderly Rosie...
    Time for some new ones I think...I will look into getting some mixed breeds this time around...I just dont think the red ones we have been buying last or lay very long at all.........enjoy your little peeps...x

  3. This film-star stuff is all very well, but at what stage do you start the lessons on garden etiquette? They have to be educated on what they are allowed or not allowed to eat / dig up.

  4. Mark, no training is necessary, but fences are. Mind you even fences aren't a guarantee against goats in the veggies!

  5. Ooo I love chicken bloomers, and particularly like your photos. Very entertaining. The character actor is my favourite, nothing like a bit of hardship to develop an interesting outlook on life.

  6. Oh sweet...such a cute chicken post! Very photogenic girls you have there Hazel... Very entertaining too...:)
