The chickens are go

Oh yes dear chronologically challenged, not here yet readers, the Landlord has given us the go ahead to keep some chickens in our back garden. How excited am I? Life a 5 year old at Christmas! We are thinking of getting one each of several different breeds. We'd love ex-battery hens but as were are planning on running a farm and making most of our money with chickens it seems sensible to "try out" the breeds we might like. We originally settled on 3 birds which I had already names Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. We are thinking of maybe getting 4 which means that poor bird will have to be called Maleficent to fit in with the theme :o) Here are the 3 we have decided on.

First up then is the Light Sussex

Next the Rhode Island Red.

Last the Miss Pepperpot.

Anyone out there in Blogland have any ideas for a fourth breed?
