hens happenings # September round-up

Have to start this post by saying RIP to Ruby.  She was feeling off colour with an impacted crop earlier this month. No point in taking her the vet because vets only “do” dogs & cats where we live, and although I did my best to relieve her, it didn’t help. She was isolated from the other gals as soon as I noticed, but died 24 hour later.  Which just leaves us with these three.

These are the three we bought only 12 months ago when Ruby found herself the sole survivor of the murder in a French orchard.

Anyway, Doris, Rita and Agatha are all fine, and enjoying some free-ranging for part of the day within the walls of the veggie garden.  Egg count though is right down, and that’s only normal. But with 3 hens we’re still collecting plenty of eggs. For September:  72 was the count.
