    We got three from our local market two months ago -we get 3 eggs daily (always laid in same spots) girls love walking in a collecting eggs. Our bunny is best friends with one of the chooks and snuggles with it. They have an open air fenced yard roughly 1mtr x3mtr and old kids cubby and sheltered end near our shed with nesting boxes.

    We also have a veg patch/es scattered around yard. Also a staffy pup that squeak barks when bunny escapes. I love that no food scraps are binned now - although bunny has to our run the chooks for the good stuff ;-)

    We had chooks when we were younger, they were simply lovely. I hope I can talk DP into getting some when we move out. He's iffy about them, he's also against sandpits so it's probably a mess thing - men! I don't know anybody who's kept chooks who doesn't like them. I miss them loads, but we don't have room for them any more because we have a granny flat for Oma

    We have 4 and get 3 eggs a day atm. We feed them pellets and scraps (mostly pellets). They are free range all day and locked up at night.. They share the yard with our cats.
