Well, I’ve finally restarted blogging and feel a lot more enthusiasm for it. Well, time will tell… I’ve also spent a lot of this afternoon learning to use the new menu navigation on WordPress and finally got it how I want it.
The hens arrived at the beginning of April and have definitely made their mark – on the slugs, on the borders in the garden, and now on the egg production!
Here they are when they first arrived:
This is Peggy. She is a ranger.
This is Prudence, a bovans nera, which is a cross between Rhode Island Red and Barred Plymouth Rock. She has lovely markings. She is also the most laid back and the peacemaker of the three.
And this is Lucy. She is an amber star. They are all hybrid hens.
They like perching on the garden bench. Prudence was the first to start laying and now they’re giving us two or three eggs a day.
This is the Very First Egg!
I don’t seem to have any very recent photos of the hens but I’ll be writing a review of the hen book soon so I’ll put a few on here then. Don’t worry though, I am doing textile stuff as well!! Just not so much as I do seem to spend a lot of time sitting in the garden these days…
