They've given us quite a few (little) eggs and the lawn & garden beds have been given a thorough "fertilising" ... but after a month it's time for Ruby and Charlotte - our book-a-chook chickens - to go back to their farm. On hearing the news Julia burst into tears: "they can't go back to the farm, they have to stay in their home!" ... it's not going to be easy. We're going to miss them scratching around in the back yard, peeking through the lounge room window at us and the commotion they both make when one of them has laid an egg ...
