Great News!


Look! Yes Bev is laying her blue eggs again - and from this collection I can see the others are too. Mabel is still laying her eggs near the old seat but as I have marked the others I know which is the fresh one.
If you remember, the hens were housed in two sheds, but last week the wind blew the door shut on henhouse 1. The hens, and Ernest all went into henhouse 2 and have been going in every night now and laying their eggs in one of the nesting boxes. This is Great News! We are now up to full production.
Well done Gals!

I noticed from my blog that this is post 194 - so post 200 is drawing close and I am going to have a Give Away!

Watch this space!

  8. What a colorful batch of eggs! How wonderful to eat your own chickens' produce. I'm sure they're happy hens (h-day is coming up!) to produce so many eggs.

    I used to get 'Cotswold Legbar' eggs when they were reduced at Tescos a few years back, not seen any lately though.

  20. Hi Denise! The eggs are all beautifully coloured. So every hen has her own colour, hasn't she. The blue egg is very special.
    Thanks for your visit.I wish we had many green men here like you have. If you happen to have some photos of a green man could you send it to me please by e-mail? My sister was the first who drew my attention to them. She had read about them.

  22. It's nice to hear the girls are behaving themselves, and laying eggs again.

    I have no idea how many posts I have done. I sometimes delete many of my old posts and start fresh. Especially if I decide to change the theme of my blogs.

  30. The eggs are wonderful and they have different colours.
    In our farm in Brazil,and in my childhood I used to "sing"for the chickens, in my kid wisdom, I was sure the chickens could produce more eggs with my songs! :)
    Well...they never complained about! LOL
