Others are late risers and aren’t in a rush to leave

They have started laying in the new orange buckets a bit, but we still find eggs in the alpaca shelter and there is one hen who every morning runs extremely fast in the direction of the pig field, vaults over the fence and lays in their bed!

Here are some random pictures of some of the hens ….

If they could just get over the ‘trauma’ of the move and start laying eggs again, I would be very happy. Hasn’t anyone told them it is spring?

  1. Lovely birds, how many do you have? I love their tiered perches, it looks like they’re in the dress circle waiting for some stage performance!

  2. Wow! Didn’t realize you had so many chickens. Guess seeing them in small groups in photos I thought there were fewer. They are gorgeous. Love the story of the one that rushes off to be in the pigs’ pen. Such funny creatures.
