Of Ballycraigy Primary and Their New Guests


Yesterday I attended our local primary school for the official launch of their new hen house paid for by Legal-Island. It's made out of recycled furniture and includes a washing machine door for a window. It's the grand work of a man called Robert, a neighbour newly retired, who is clearly putting his mind to creative and imaginative projects.
The kids loved the four new hens and barely contained themselves when they discovered two freshly laid eggs in the hens "bedroom" on the first floor of this wonderful contraption.
One boy so small he struggled to reach in and pick up the egg asked me if there was a chicken inside. Another asked if they were always this colour like he was expecting the odd gold one from time time time. Top stuff!
