Another month has whooshed by and our three hens have all been quite industrious in the shade of the old apple trees.
Miss Moneypenny is the Queen of the coop for the second month in a row. Completely making up for her broody months in May and June. In August she laid 26 eggs . . . Miranda in second place with 18 and Miss Marple a runner up with 15. A total of 59 eggs therefore for August . . . more than enough for us, and neighbours have been enjoying our hens’ freshly laid eggs too.
