Well we had to get the scissors out and do some wing clipping. When I say “we”, I mean, myself, Lindashee and ‘Titia (both of whom were here for the weekend) because the hens were simply too happy to see us and flying over the fencing each time they heard the gate open. This week alone, Miss Moneypenny flew out of the park 3 times and Miranda and Miss Marple once. It took three of us to do the job. I caught and held each hen in turn, Lindashee unfolded a wing . . . and ‘Titia did the clipping.
We’ve had another bumper egg collection this week- TWENTY eggs in total . . . divided by three hens means that
Miss Moneypenny and Miss Marple both laid SEVEN eggs each
and Miranda laid SIX eggs.
So it’s been eggs galore – omelettes, meringues, and poached egg on toast.
