Over the moon.



Bev is now out and about with Mabel and Olwyn. Here they are earlier today on the kitchen doorstep waiting for their 10 o'clocks. They are currently partial to red grapes.



After a baking session I saved all the left over pastry bits and served it for tea - they loved it.




It is lovely to capture the hens in their daily activities. Mabel does enjoy looking at the flowers - no she doesn't eat them.




A couple of days ago Bev made her way to the henhouse and laid an egg - a good indication she is well and truly over her ordeal.




The eggs from Bev are out of this world!

Over the moon indeed. ABC Wednesday.

  4. I'm so glad Bev has recouped and is now back in the egg laying business.
    It seems the scariness hasn't permenently harmed her.
    Great photos of your Dear Ladies.

  5. Like you I admire the golden colour of the yolks of my hens eggs - always pecking about in the grass - and a taste quite unmatched by anything you buy in the shops.

  15. Chickens look like a lot of fun. When I was very little, I barely remember our Banty hen. We lived in sprawling Los Angeles, but at that time they were allowed. Down the alley they even had a rooster. Then times changed. Now things are swinging back and at least hens are allowed in many cities. - Margy

  18. By some chance do your hens know their names when you call them?

  19. Good news.

    We have a lot of stale bread at the moment. I know ducks aren't allowed to eat it; can chickens? And before you suggest bread and butter pudding, please don't! I must take dieting more seriously!
