Our first winter blast from the south is a bit of a shock but the new chickens have arrived.

Winter has finally hit us with frosty mornings that call for leggings under the jeans, double layers of socks and hat wearing for most of the day. But that isn’t the only thing that’s happened.
Hello from one of our new chickens

Hello from one of our new chickens

We have some new family members at Lavender & Ewe.

Our new chickens arrived yesterday. They came from Nelson on a courier truck in two little cardboard boxes. As soon as we opened the boxes, out they came to say hello.

They’ve settled in very quickly and they are great fun but not laying any eggs yet.
