Nesting Box 1 last Night!
When I went to clean out the henhouse last night I discovered the very first egg the girls had delivered for us. I am not sure who was responsible but I have a suspision it is May.
We did not eat it, though tepmpted, we marked it and left it in the nesting box to encourage the others to lay some more!
The hens are definately showing their personalities now. First on the scene, front of the queue is always Little Eva followed by May. The two dominent ones tend to be Mabel and Olwyn. When I am putting them in for the night it is Mabel who would sleep in the tree if given half a chance. They both stretch their necks towards the tree when going in for the evening and I wonder if they are casing the joint for future escape plans! Margie and Bev are always the first into the henhouse and seem to be the most placid.
We are very happy with the way they are all getting along! Their favourite snack has to be the elderberries and the wind fallen apples...which reminds me, I must sort out the apples and EVERYTHING else on my list. Trouble is, we are very busy with Jon's business right now and tomorrow we are off to Sunderland for 3 meetings. Thursday I have 2 meetings, again for Jon's business and we are both off to Huddersfield on Friday, again 3 more meetings.
Then there are the wedding commissions I have on....
STILL! I am not complaining!
Anybody who is business and moans about being busy is quite frankly in the wrong job!
Business is all about being busy! Infact I would bet on the fact that busy is a root word of business! What do you think?
