The new girls

The Royal Canberra Poultry Show was a great event.  Aside from some friends doing well in the judging, and the fun we had at the set-up working bee, the highlight was buying three Rhode Island Red (RIR) girls for our breeding program.  We’ve decided that RIRs are the way forward as they’re definitely good eating and apparently good layers too.  And sooooo purdy.

Here they are, our red-theme-named girls Ruby, Scarlett and Carmine
