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

Chicken Sitting

 Matron is looking after my Sister's three chickens for a couple of weeks.  These three young ladies were purchased as 'point of lay' chickens just a few weeks ago.
 May I introduce Chicken Supreme, Chicken Kiev and Coronation Chicken!  Two of the girls have been laying eggs for some time now.
 So every morning we have had two fresh eggs  .. until this morning!
All three chickens now laying eggs. These lovely ladies are hybrid hens 'Bovans Goldline' beautifully calm and friendly and easy to keep.

I think those names are great! I hope they are not a hint about the chickens' eventual fate though.

love the names. We have an allotment & doing our best to produce eadable veg and have had chickens for a few years now. They always produce lots of lovely eggs. (Even had 9 one day last week!) I suggest you get your own. We keep them in the back garden and away from the horrid foxes!!
