One of our beautiful Barnvelder hens-these are the chooks
that lay the lovely brown eggs.
We had 10 chicks hatch this month (naturally- no incubators here)
This sent our egg count down as we had 2 hens that were sitting.
Our egg count was from 14 hens & then from the 9th January was from 13 hens.
Total eggs for the month was 188
I thought it was okay seeing as some hens are now on there 3rd year of lay & also the big variation in weather we have been having.
and this is the Daddy. Our Barnvelder Rooster who has just the quietest temperament but still looks after his ladies well.
