We want babies!

A lot has been Happening  such as looking online for plastic houses such as Omlet Eglus and second hand green frog arks we nearly bidded on a eglu classic but didn’t… We searched the village where is was and it came up on google maps that it was only around 20 mutinets away, and no one was bidding with only 2 hours left! So I quickly scanned the description and it said *the village name* nr Wales  so I returned to google maps and it turns out it’s a village in Wales on the complete other side of England! We’ve been looking for a house because the 2nd load of chicks also need a house as they’ve only been going out side in a little run in the day and returning to the cage indoors at night. Also the 1st flock of chicks need a home, we’re looking for a ideally 10 but realistically a 6-7 bird plastic coop for around £150. We will join Luna, pixie,Lyra and Maia with Kim,kourtney and klohé as two of the other chicks are living at a school where my mum works and one of thems a boy and unlike Luna who we think is a cockerel and pixie hes not staying sadly as we are already hoping to keep pixie and Luna let alone any others and even they may be rehomed so note to self pixie and Luna: be friendly and kind to your ladies and crow not as loud as beyonces laying announcement or she won’t be happy!😂

But at the moment boys you’re okay because beyonces too busy being… BROODY.AGAIN! Along with the help of pepper they’ve been stashing away eggs, I think they want babies.

Our plans are coming together for a larger run. Knocking down the garden shed, installing a new one to make way for a 24 square meter run and a new hen house, were totally not chicken crazy!

Also to the viewer in Canada hello and welcome to theurbanhens I hope you enjoy the posts and updates!😊

Broody Beyoncè 

Pure breeds especially brahmas,pekins,orpingtons and silkies. Every year Beyoncè goes broody sometimes pepper too. This year Beyoncè is broody!!! Really early in the season too!!! I think she herd me when I was at morrisons saying “if one of the hens goes broody can we hatch some eggs?” Then I came home to a grumpy faced Beyoncè on her three eggs she had laid. So when I was back down the town I got some Clarence court eggs from the supermarket. I know it’s from a farm where there aren’t any cockerels but a boy maneged to hatch a legbar egg from Clarence court and many people hatch Clarence court duck eggs. Also I love the legbars blue shells! My Nan was telling me how at a farm where her husband works they produce brown eggs on a large scale for supermarkets and within the many hens there was a cockerel roaming around there for a year as it wasn’t sexed at the hatchery.
