Our new ladies have settled in very nicely and over the last week or so have provided 9 or 10 eggs per day.
We are looking forward to our first 11 egg day which will prove they are all laying – it may take a few weeks yet.
It is such a joy to be able to recycle all the wasted veg, salad, pasta, and grain into their afternoon treat – not only does it give them something to look forward to it also gives their eggs the most fabulous flavour. My egg this morning was so sweet and flavourful – it was amazing.
We’ve found that pellets are working better in the feeder – although not as much fun for the chickens, they are less inclined to make a mess. We have a couple of bags of Mash, we’ll have to make it into a warm porridge and put it in the grubs to use it up.
Meanwhile – a special thank you to all the neighbours, friends, colleagues and family who have bought our eggs.
