The girls are now obliging but they are still a little hit and miss with the old egg laying business. They have come through the moult and after looking like battered old feather dusters for a little while they’re in tip-top condition and demonstrating that they’re hardy little things. Unperturbed by rain, wind and snow, they just carry on about their business focussed solely on food and looking pretty. Today, as a reward for their hard work, they’ve been treated to an extra special hot breakfast with porridge oats, rice and raisins and as always it was gone in minutes.
The two girls at the forefront of the picture above are still going strong and can be seen in my original post: 'A warm breakfast for cold chickens'. They are endlessly entertaining and wonderfully productive as ever with McGee, the brown hen, having very few days off in the years that I've had her.
Here's hoping for a productive 2013!
