Our chickens are laying eggs! Four have been produced so far (the one above is the very first), but only three were edible because the fourth had a hole pecked in it by chicken or chickens unknown (apparently this means that they need more calcium in their diets - which we have now remedied). I have to say that eggs from your own chickens taste so much better than other eggs!
The year is gradually moving towards winter. It is especially cool today (though the chickens are itching to get out of their coop as always) with rain and a pretty fresh wind. This little fellow retreated inside attached to the clothes being brought inside from the clothesline. I carried him outside again, but he wasn't having it, so I held out my hand and he chose a spot on the bathroom wall.
