Meet Our Chickens

And you thought we were just two kids who bought a house

When we moved in to our house, the first thing we thought was: we need to get a dog. With work commitments and renovations planned for the house, it just doesn’t seem fair for us to do that just yet. So, we settled for the next best thing – chickens!

Blog, meet Nugget and Schnitz.


We picked these lovely girls up from Evans Chickens, a registered breeder of many a chicken breed.

Nugget and Schnitz are 14-week old Australorps, an Australian breed of chicken known for laying up to 200 eggs a year. They’re easy to look after and have a very good temperament.

We’ve never owned chickens before so we thought these girls would be best to start with.

Our girls won’t be laying until May which gives them plenty of time to get used to their new home.

The newest additions to our family are … wait for it … egg-cellent! 😀

Until next time,

Ashley and David
