I didn't know whether to make this a Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real post or a Farm Girl Friday. So I guess we'll call it both :)
The end of March our ready to lay hens arrived. They aren't used to me, so they pile up in the corner when I go in the pen. They'll get used to me and Colin soon.
The hens last year were too young. It took nearly 6 weeks for them to lay. Not exactly 'ready to lay', though we didn't get charged any less!
But I'm Happy to say that the hens got off to a great start and I had half a dozen later that afternoon. I'm really happy now because the hens are almost up to regular 'large' sized eggs.
