It’s 31st January already! So, after a quick phone call to Mr Tattoo, to wish him a happy 33rd birthday, it’s time to tot up egg total for the month.
Egg count is down from normal, partly (I think) because of the weather we’ve been having. We had a couple of snow falls this month
About 10cm in those photos, and the hens were rather perplexed by all that white stuff covering the ground in their enclosure. I had to rake a clear space so that they could see grass poking through before they agreed to get back to their normal activity of pecking & scratching. A bowl of daily “treats” helped too.
Anyway, for January there were a total of 67 eggs. From left to right in photos: Mauricette laid 18, Ruby laid 23 and Florence (our black Medici) laid 26.
