Polish Chickens!

Some of our free-ranging hens pecking around searching for bugs and worms near our currant bushes.

Regular visitors will know that we live in a rural setting. Here’s a photograph of three of our hens in front of one of two henhouses. We currently have nine chickens, which keep us (and some of our extended family) in tasty free-range eggs. The chickens are free to wander anywhere on our core three hectare plot and each hen generally lays one egg each and every day. Dropping in winter to perhaps one every egg two or three days. Many Poles in our rural part of Poland keep a few chickens and some friends even keep a pig or two to fatten up and eat!
