We have three new hens (someone else’s regretted impulse purchase donated to us!).  We cleaned out and re-felted the roof of the old chicken coop yesterday in preparation, and they arrived today at lunch time.  Very attractive point-of-lay – maybe their production levels will encourage the old gals in the main run! 


They do look very slight in comparison with the birds in the established ‘peep’, but no doubt they’ll mature fast.  I just hope they don’t get too badly bullied when they join the others.  Nice to have some young stock though to help replace our ageing hen population.

I’ve also finished digging over the main veg plot today (hoorah!).  Only the smaller plot to do now.  So should soon be able to start getting some veggies in…  Spring is definitely on the way.  😉
