Oh no! Ive joined the blogging phenom!

As if I didn't have enough on my plate! :) Just kidding. Yip, its pretty busy being a wife and mum of two young children, but I've been wanting to start a blog for a little while now. So here I am!

Stay posted for updates, news, thoughts and just general things you probably didn't need to know :) Oooooo and maybe the odd super delicious recipe! I lurrrrve cooking! I also want to start my own garden so will probably blog about that too.

Means I called my blog, lessons from the chicken coop I should probably put something in here about chickens....

Well, this is Nigel. Hes a purebred Rhode Island Red rooster. He is king in this neck of the woods! I'm sad to say that I ate his brother... But Nigel was the better looking of the two and I wanted to keep the best one for breeding. He has two young Rhode Island Red hens who aren't quite ready to start laying yet, but once they are I will be putting their eggs in my incubator and there will be baby Nigel's running about.

I also have a purebred Dorking rooster which I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with. I think I might cross him with Helga (Nigel's sister) and hatch some babies from him too. He is more of a meat bird.

Ultimately, I want to breed chickens which are great for both eggs and meat.

Well, sad to say that's it for me. My small portion of time that I have to myself during the day while the girls sleep is over.

Till next time!
