When they are in, all they want to do is get out. You know, the grass is greener on the other side, right?

I've been sitting here tonight working on my chicken records. I've bought a few newbies (ssshhh, don't tell Hubby) and I need to shuffle chooks around pens. I need to work out who I'm keeping and who I'm selling, who is taking a visit to the freezer and who I'm going to match make with who. I'm also trying to streamline the whole chook raising process a little and it's taking a bit of thinking on paper.
When I opened my notebook that I've been recording incubator hatching details in, I saw this sweet little picture that my boy drew me. "I'll draw you a chicken, Mum. Just so you remember this page is about chickens."
It makes me smile everytime I see it.
