New Chickens

Our breakfast eggs are supplied by our chickens, out in the garden. However our last group of 7 hens where getting on a bit and had stopped laying. It was time to pension them off, so they were given to a lady in a near by village who has lots of space and hens of her own.

So we now have a new flock, of 10 hens this time. They are about a year old and came from a nearby farm shop who had bought hens to sell free range eggs, but had bought too many.

They're settled in now and are laying about 6-8 eggs a day between them.

They've not quite established their "pecking" order and there is a bit on in-fighting amongst them, but they will soon settle down.
