We're still enjoying life here in Luxor. We've now got chickens that free range in the garden and we are now getting as many as 25 eggs a day. I've also got into incubating eggs and raising birds from babies. It's really quite a commitment as you have to manually turn the eggs over like a Mother Hen would, three times a day. Here are some of my egg in the 'bator' as my fellow Chicken enthusiasts seem to call it.
I've been quite successful so far and manage to hatch these little cutie Baladi chicks...

We get so much fruit on our trees now it's just incredible, the coming months we'll see peaches, mangoes, apricots, applies, figs and Dates so lots of Jam making to crack on with.
We had a rather lovely guest stay with us recently who made a video of our garden and chickens. It was in February so probably the worst month as it's very wintery but if you're interested in watching you can see it here https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153143387461983 and feel free to 'like' my Facebook page while you're at it.
