Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Sunday, May 29, 2011
Yesterday when I went to shut the chooks in the hen house for the night, I opened the door and there was an egg lying in the middle of the floor! It's the first one laid by one of our four birds. Based on expectations set by the breeder, I thought they would start laying in July or later. It's a proper brown speckled Barnevelder egg, albeit quite small at 49g. How exciting.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
