New Chooks

There are thirteen ex-free range hens now living where the meat chickens use to be. All of our other hens are starting to ‘get on’ a bit and so we need some new egg layers. And they are already laying eggs, one yesterday and five today.

I like the number thirteen, ‘a bakers dozen’, it reminds me of icing and current-buns.
