My Rentachooks arrived today!

Nicely-made coop (though I think the roost is too low, not that there's
anywhere else to put it). Birds are originally from a chook breeder who sells
to battery farms, and they've been debeaked :-( At least they're going to
have happy lives. One is caramel and the other is more a light rust colour.
About 22 weeks old; may or may not be laying already; we'll find out tomorrow
morning. Threw some old cabbage in but the chooks weren't sure if it was food
or not.

Not named yet. I suggested Caramel and Rusty or Sage and Onion; DH wants
Gregory and Peck (from an episode of Bananas in Pyjamas, but as we don't have
a rooster that seems inappropriate); DS1 has ultimate naming rights.

I think that might be one reason a lot of women like using the notation DH --
it can be so many, many things...

Unfortunately, these two have lost a bit of the bottom as well -- you can
imagine how short their beaks are :-( When I said "savagely debeaked", I
really meant it!

I will only buy battery eggs if I am desperate.
