I have inherited two new hens from a friend, here they are
both black, one tiny but both regular layers, seem to be coping well too, having come from a free range home with no other hens or cockerels, they took a couple of days to settle in and get used to the cock-a-doodle-doing, which is loud and frequent
In-case you were wondering about the enormous egg? it wasn’t a double yoker as we thought it might be, it was actually an egg inside an egg!! nobody has ever heard of such a thing, so if you have, please comment, needless to say that hen has not laid another egg since!!! shame
Bits of my garden are doing very well, especially the flowers
and the top fruit. Last year we had a few raspberries, this year I am picking at least half a kilo of loganberries and raspberries everyday.
I’m freezing most of it to make some jam later on in the year when it’s not so hot.
