    Hello ladies and gents

    After lots of research and visits to local farms we have today purchased our first two chickens. We have a wooden run with closed off compartment for the chickens to lay eggs and keep warm at night. We have got a red star that is 19 weeks old and a black star about 20 weeks old.

    After setting up the new home we decided to put the chickens in their run and go and get some extra sliding bolts to make sure it is secure. When we got home we found that one of the chickens had gone straight to the egg box and left us a nice small brown egg.

    no to go and read through the forum for helpful tips and advise

    Wow - your Black Star is gorgeous! Well, they both are but I'm particularly interested in the Black Star since I have one now also. Mine is only about 3 1/2 weeks old but I hope she turns out half as pretty as yours! :D
