There has been a request from Mrs Bok to see my 'Girls' - I have a sneaking suspicion that she is even more obsessed with these lovely creatures than myself, if that is possible!
So it is with great pleasure that I introduce "Sarah" & "Leesa", our 1 yr old Isa Brown Chooks.
Life isn't quite as sunny without a couple of chooks in the backyard and we sadly had to leave Bok Bok 1, 2, 3 and 4 back in Tassie. So these Girls were one of our first purchases when we arrived in Sydney. They were bought as day-old chicks in May last year. I'm pretty sure we are the ONLY house in this area that has chooks but I'm hoping to start a new trend :-)
They were inside the house in this brooder box for 6 weeks (although curious little fingers opening the doors meant we were often searching high and low for them and finding them in warm places like behind the hot water cylinder or next to the dryer).
They were loved to death by Miss Fancy, Blue Eyes, Little Buddy & D
They are big girls now and free-range most of the day.
I opted for a metal chook tractor for easy cleaning and portability. It has an 'upstairs' nesting box - an egg a day from each of these lovely Girls.
They are such great pets and are frequently found on the porch wanting to come in (cute) and if the door is open they will make their way into the kids bedrooms (and make the most revolting of messes - not so cute!!!)
