Building the Chook House

AKA - The Big House

The first week in October 2016 we started building the chook shed. 
Anyone who has milled their own timber knows it takes a lot longer than just going to the timber yard and coming home will all you need for your job.

Chickens the Gateway Drug

This is Eagle Girl, she is a flight risk, must be closely watched.

So it is said that chickens are the gateway drug to a more sustainable life.
Is it true.... yes i think so, the temptation of all those lovely fresh eggs and how easy chickens are to come by and care for they are usually the first thing people get into even before doing a veggie garden.
I first got chickens in about 2001, 2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Austrolops. I have come a long way from those first chickens and have learned so much.

These are the Lawson Ladies- Miss Gray, Miss White, Miss Black and 
the Brown Twins.

Fried Rice Recipe

This easy rice makes a great lunch or a perfect side dish. The rice can be cooked up to 3 days before or you can cook it and pop it in the freezer either way the rice needs to be cold.
