All our new chooks are now laying, not every day but most days.
The kids just love running out after school to collect them and in the mornings when they get up and let the girls out for the day.

Some days we get 6 eggs some days only 3 eggs.
The funny thing is before we probably bought 1 dozen eggs each fortnight, sometimes less only occasionally more yet now we arent yet having excess to give away as suddenly the kids LOVE eggs!
Its agreat after school snack, soft boiled eggs with toast soldiers.

Today after school I was chatting with Jaime (age 5) and asking how her day was. She said ti was great and today at school they had to draw pictures of a chore they did at home. They could only pick one so she picked and drew herself collecting eggs form the chooks :)

and we 'may' be getting more chooks and a big new chook pen and run! People over the park are getting new renters in and they have a few chooks and a big house and run that they are most likely going ot be looking for a new home for.

Hi Susan,
Yes in answer to your question I recently started two blogs (after enjoying reading others for so long!). One is: (an online guide to parenting in Melbourne's south) and (ramblings about home - you will see our new rabbit there). If it's OK I might put a link to your site on Baysidemama as I think some of my readers would enjoy your blog. regards, Kylie

Yep, there is nothing like home grown egss. I never liked eggs until I tasted fresh, free range eggs. They taste totally different!!!! Plus they're lots of fun too. :)

Children and chooks go so well together. Yum, nothing beats a fresh egg from one's own backyard:)

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the fact that so few people are talking about presidential candidates and their thoughts on global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( ) live earth is also asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw a poll on that says people care a lot about what their next leader thinks of global warming. Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

Here is the page where I saw the EarthLab poll: This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. Does anyone have a strong opinion about this like I do? No matter what your political affiliation is or who you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April? I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
