Worming the girls and Gold is back in lay

I worm the girls in March and September and suddenly realised there was only a week left of March so I decided to start today. As usual I put the powder in dishes of mash for seven consecutive days.

Both Gold and Storm have been very vocal for the last few days and I guessed they were getting ready to lay again. I wondered which girl would be first. Then this morning Gold went in all three nest boxes before settling in her favourite one by the gate.

When I next checked on her Dot was watching over her just as she laid her egg.

Gold has only taken an eight day break before laying again. That makes four girls laying and hopefully it will be five soon.

    Great to get more eggs – until someone is broody again.
