I haven’t bothered taking any recent photos of the gals these past few weeks, but they’re all well, and strutting around, enjoying the milder weather.
I have been counting eggs as usual though, as I collect them on a daily basis, and this month there have been quite a few days when I’ve found four eggs, all snuggled up together in the straw.
Miss Plumpton, however, is our best layer of March. She only took a rest for 2 days this month, and laid a total of 29 eggs. Her shells are very pale, compared to the other gals, so very easy to recognise. Other gals all laid very well too, including the older hens.
22 laid by Mauricette, 19 by Miranda, and 18 by Miss Moneypenny, so a grand total of 88 eggs in March. And, yes, neighbours have been enjoying fresh eggs aplenty this month.
