an update. Our current count is eleven hens and a rooster. We were gifted with four Marans back in September (by Blake's cousin, who raises them).....Pearl, Regina, Bo and Eunice.
Bobbie, our oldest hen, remains Miss Photogenic.
These pampered ladies have been on strike for over two months....the result of shorter days, moulting and youth. Finally, we were rewarded with these eggs for five days in a row. I believe they were produced by one of the new girls, as they look a bit different from any of our other eggs. Maybe the others will get the idea.
