Some of my fondest childhood memories were in the garden, planting and picking flowers, building tree houses and caring for our pet chickens. Ever since we moved into our new home, a year and a half ago, I’ve been dying to recreate some nostalgia by adopting a couple of pet chooks to live and rome freely in our backyard!
Me with Bella Russ
Silkies have a very gentle nature. The more you handle them, the friendlier they become.
Mrs Schintzel and Bella Russ only stayed with us for 3 months. It turns out, keeping chickens in a small, tidy, inner-city courtyard isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. The girls now live at a preschool veggie garden keeping all the little kiddies happy. We hope to one day adopt new chickens when we have a bigger yard with room for a proper chicken coop!
