best layer of the month # August

You wouldn’t think it to look at her, but August’s best layer of the month is Ruby (again), still looking very scrawny on the right of this photo.  She’s been going through a massive moult this summer and her golden feathers are taking an age to grow back, despite extra vitamins.  I suspect she’s also being somewhat hen-pecked by the others too.  However, that hasn’t put her off her egg-laying.

Total eggs collected this month: 70.  Of those, Mauricette (far left in photo) laid 21. Florence (centre) laid 23. And Ruby laid 26.  So well done Ruby – she’s a star!

    • yes she does. Florence had a moult too and still hasn’t grown back her nice black feathers on her back, but Ruby is looking very bedraggled.
