Chickens Are A Laying
We've got 8 new chickens at Pottery House, the idea being to keep us in fresh free range eggs for guests breakfasts.
The last lot of chickens we had got too old and their egg laying had dimished.
Our new hens where 17 weeks when they arrived at the start of April, and where extremely shy only coming out of the hen-house if bribed with food.
Now there is no stopping them, in fact when I go out in the morning they peck at the door, waiting ofr it to be opened.
The are laying 7-8 eggs a day, can't complain about that.
