Well we're off and running. Yesterday for the first time all four Lavender Pekin Bantams laid an egg, that's the fourth little egg for Alice and the first for the others.
Alice checking her egg.
Who's the Daddy? Why Caldwell of course. Fertilised eggs will be soon be for sale, I'm waiting until they are laying on a regular basis before jumping onto the sales bandwagon, in the meantime I was hoping for a broody hen to man (chicken?) the maternity ward......fingers crossed.
Prudence and Isabel deciding whether to brave the rain.
We have the sunshine back today.....shhh.....don't scare it away, yesterday was dire, it rained all day, the hens and dogs were lost and miserable, they just didn't know what to do with themselves. The pigs enclosure quickly turned into a mud pool and I went through three changes of clothes before bedtime.
Let's hope for a better day today.
