So here is the story behind the photos from my previous post found here.
Some great guesses guys…and nearly spot on 🙂
Leaving our place.
Stopping off to get some fuel & pump up the tyres for the heavy load we were about to get.
The beautiful drive out to my parents place. You unwind just driving along this countryside.
From the top of my parents driveway.
We needed to borrow the trailer today so Kirk helped dad unload a cool room.
Part of the cool room fell off the trailer and the metal edge sliced down Kirk's leg and cut dad's finger. Lucky it wasn't too deep and I got some great photos 😉
At mum and dad's hanging out by the fire. Love this!
In an attempt to do First Aid on Kirk's leg...
Breakfast at mum and dad's place. The omelette was made using their neighbours chook eggs. In return, dad gives them some venison (deer) that he hunts.
While Kirk was helping mum with some iPhone stuff I took some pics from their balcony.
Heading out of dad and mum's place - one of their cows.
Ducked in at home to grab a coffee before heading off to Brisbane. Kirk was in a funny mood.
A guy in Brisbane was getting rid of his chook pen, so we took it off him.
Now for some directions to get to our chooks! I love the iPhone maps.
Heading to the farm, which was on the way to Bribie Island.
Our two special packages - pen and box with our chooks in it.
Home at last and all set up for some scratching in the dirt.
Panini slightly annoyed and confused by the new family members.
The sisters in their new home.
It was a strange turn of events as we had planned to get the chook pen only and come home, but on the drive down to Brisbane we received a message saying some people had a couple of Australorp chooks for sale if we wanted them.
We are planning on keep the girls in their pen for a few days so they can get used to being together and in their new surroundings (also so our sooky cats can adjust). Where the chooks were previously kept by their old owners was inside an aviary with a rottweiler dog on either side…it was freaky and so loud with all that barking and banging about on the wire! We will eventually let the girls out during the day and put them in their pen at night. Here’s to hoping it all goes well 🙂
