We've reached 100 eggs this month already!

From our dear 19 hens, all rescues of one kind or another, we have had
100 eggs already this month.
I'm so eggcited. At the beginning of the year I decided to use my
Battery Rechargers calendar for anything hen related so tallied up
each day and thought how good it would be to reach 100 in the whole
month so I'm shocked my girls have done it already.
Bless my happy hens

Good going!

We've got 5 rescue hens (13 hens in total + cockrel) - they took a while to fit in and be comfortable with their surroundings...

...AND our resident cockrel!!

Although we had a major lull in egg laying over the Winter months, mainly since firework night acutually - all seems to be slowly returning to normal (ish).

At the moment we get around 6 eggs a day out of the 13 hens, although the Silkies have stopped laying while they sit on the others eggs - they are always really broody little things!

So good work and look forward to seeing what they do next!
