Using a photo from the archives today, because it’s raining and I don’t want to get wet taking photos of bedraggled hens. I much prefer to use this photo from a few months ago, with their fluffy bottoms!
Hens must know that Spring is in the air because we’ve had the most productive month ever! In the 31 days of March, four hens laid a total of 112 eggs !!! Yes, that’s right! A whopping 112 eggs, all perfectly formed, no tiny misfires, and none with soft shells. 112 eggs that the husband and I couldn’t eat, just the two of us, so I’ve been distributing eggs, literally by the dozen, to neighbours!
