It's quite entertaining keeping hens! Over the past few days it has been great news to see them get back into the egg laying process. I guess like people (well me) some of them are not morning creatures, whilst others are. This morning when I let them out of their respective henhouses I found two nestled away. By the colours I know these were from Eva and May, the two orange coloured hens. Absolutely gorgeous too I can tell you!
Ernest has settled in just fine. He sleeps in Henhouse 2 with his flame Mabel, but on some occasions Bev and Margie spend the night in there too!
This is henhouse 2 (former goosehut) as I took this photograph I could make out the form of Mabel inside, settling down to lay an egg.
Our hens have a very good life really - they certainly have lots of space in which to roam. They cross over the front lawn, onto the wall. under the fence and have a real good forage in the field next door.
Whilst I was taking the photographs I noticed Margie, the white hen hanging away from the rest of the hens.
Look why! She has been making a nest in the hedge between the wall and the field.
