Down on the Allotment

Matron grows vegetables and fruit in a Hampshire garden. I've been growing veggies since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Some traditional varieties and old favourites as well as new ideas. I share my garden with my allotment assistant Daisy the Labrador. On Twitter as @MatronsVeggies

Your chickens are beautiful! Chicken fever is contagious. My sister (in law)got a chicken and then I got one for my daughters. Chickens are awesome!

They are both very good looking! We just acquired a flock of six chicks that we are enjoying thoroughly.

I'm trying to get up the gall to one day have some chickens. I just don't know what I'd do if a snake got into their pin or if some crazy neighborhood cat decided it wanted a challenge.

They're beauties. I would love to keep chickens but our house deeds don't allow it, and nor are we allowed to keep them on the allotment.

Gorgeous girls, both of them. Fresh eggs, woot! I'm thinking about having a few chickens too.

BTW Tara says woof. She's in heat at the mo the poor widdle thing and not feeling quite herself. Hormones do wreak havoc in a widdle doggywog, she far less happy that usual. Oh well, it will pass.

What handsome girls. Or can girls be handsome? I bought my three hens as adults also. I didn't want the nuisance of raising chicks and wanted instant eggs.

The girls are beautiful. I have plans to expand the hen familly too, probably another 4 girls ;-)
