And back to chickens

I seem to have veered away from chickens lately. I thought that I should put out a group photo just to prove that the girls are still here and all doing very nicely.

The best way to get a group photo is to give the girls a treat. There have been a few occasions recently when the entire flock have all been sitting together either in the sun or later in the day in the shade but every time I go back with my camera one of the girls will have moved away from the group.

This morning I decided to give the girls two dishes of mash with plenty of cold water, as a cooling treat, to get a few group shots of them.

They are such a lovely flock

My lovely girls.

      I love it when I manage to get a few shots of them altogether. Just after these photos Smoke went into the nest box and laid her egg.

    A lovely flock, but I have to say that Speckles’ plumage is still absolutely stunning: some anconas next for me, perhaps? I now have 4 older girls who, despite looking like layers, have now passed their egg-laying days – they make me think of Speckles.

      Speckles at eight years old is now my oldest, ever, girl and she still looks good despite not laying which doesn’t bother me at all. I call her my retired girl. She has such a lovely nature too.
