The big 40!

on June 20, 2012

Yay! Today all exams ended in our house for the summer and the hens laid 3 eggs this morning! This brings us to a grand total of 40 eggs since they arrived. So their new diet is beginning to kick in and increased egg production is finally happening. I’m a sucker for any product that claims to boost health in humans or dogs and now hens are added to the list. I picked up the “keep well poultry tonic” – I’ll try anything to get these girls firing out eggs as nature intended.

Youngest son suggests that we paint the hens ears different colours to influence the colour of their eggs. Or feeding them the blue flowers we used during the Jubilee to get blue eggs. Much as I love an experiment I think that is a step too far.
