The new girls on the block

We've just picked up 20 day old chicks.  Its time to up the egg production as we've been asked if we can supply 10 dozen a week of free range organic eggs.  So while these girls grow up a little, we'll be building a second run and coop that will sit adjacent to the veggie patches to house the new recruits.
We've been told that looking after 30 chickens isn't much more work than looking after 10, so we're about to find out.  But I tell you what, these little girls are so cute!!
