Group photo

I decided to give the girls a couple of dishes of mash so that I could get a group photo. Seeing Star and Dot sharing a dish shows how much Star’s confidence has grown. It also gives a size comparison of the different girls.

Sharing some mash

The girls love a bit of mash. It’s a treat that is just their normal food but they enjoy the different texture.

Gold is now laying again after her brief broody spell so we are back to three girls laying.

I am still feeling that something is adrift with Diamond. She is now over a year old and has never laid. She also has a mucky bottom again. I often wonder if having gape worm while only young has caused her some damage. I guess only time will tell but Diamond does concern me. I can only hope for the best.

    The girls certainly love their mash. Hope all will be well with Diamond.

      I hope so too but I am just trying to stay aware that something may not be right. I will keep my fingers crossed but whenever we have had a girl not lay in the past there has turned out to be something wrong in the end. She still has time to prove me wrong.

    Lovely photo of a lovely flock. Have you tried the pelvic bone test with Diamond? As she was fully grown when you got her, there is no real way of telling her age but, if the pelvic bones are separated, that would indicate previous laying – she might have been older than PoL when she was sold to you. Just a thought…
