We’ve been sweltering this month with temperatures in the high 30°C . . . hens are glad to be in the orchard, with their coop in the shade of two apple trees, but of course, temperatures are measured in the shade, so they’re out there in the high 30°C.
Miss Moneypenny has taken the unending heat as an excuse to go broody again. In August, she laid the grand total of one egg lol. Just as well for us, the other girls are laying as usual and August’s tally was 54 eggs. 1 from Miss Moneypenny, 26 from Miranda and 27 from Miss Marple.
Roll on the cooler weather and autumn.
