You may or may not have heard that Eden Hall is now the home to two lovely chickens. Remember the broiler chicks we received sometime in March? Well, it turned out a hen somehow got mixed in with all of the roosters and so we decided to keep her (as well as a friend rooster, of course!). They pretty much spend every waking moment together and enjoy following each other around the garden. The only downside is putting them back in their coop at the end of the day (that rooster just loves playing tricks on you). But other than that, they have been a great addition to Eden Hall and it’s always nice to come to work and let them out of their coop to roam for a while. Rita, the hen, has even started laying eggs… we’ve been finding them all over!
So here they are, Rita & Ricky, the new Eden Hall chickens!
