As expected, because I am in obsessive love with our hens, they provide most of today's blog content. The girls have settled down very well and we are getting, on average, three eggs per day. Steve has a bit of an issue with egg collection, he doesn't like the hens to see him collecting the eggs, waiting instead for them to go out in the yard, so their accusing eyes don't meet his. Dag :-)
Angie and Anne are very tame and will tolerate me picking them up and cuddling them. Wilma runs a mile and has to be cornered to be captured, while Leanne will bolt if she can, but if she gets a fright she freezes, then bobs down and stamps up and down on the spot with her wings slightly raised which makes it easy to pick her up. Odd!
They are ever so nosy and follow me round as I lift up things, diving in to see if there is anything interesting underneath. This, I think, is Anne, waiting while I shift a piece of wood, she is hoping for a few tasty slaters to eat.
