Yesterday we finally got round to blocking up the pop hole in the old shed. We have decided to leave it until next year to decide what to do with the old shed.

The old pop hole is properly blocked up

Smoke has laid eight eggs in ten days and has now gone broody again. We seem to permanently have one or two broodies on the go.

Ebony laid another egg in the wooden shelter, that’s two days running. I have no idea why she has started laying there when we have three perfectly good nest boxes.

Marmite’s purple patch has faded to mauve but the good news is that she has pins.

Marmite has pins on her head

Feathers are coming in

It will be so good to see Marmite feathered again. I think the purple spray has been a success.

      I have known about the purple spray since we first had chickens through forums, blogs and vets, but I haven’t needed to use it for a long time. In the past, to be honest, it never really seemed to work but I thought it was worth a try. This time it seems to be working so far so I am glad I used it again.
