    It was fairly sunny here today Lee so the were catching a few rays and having a snooze I think Auntie Beak was supposed to be keeping watch. It does get nice and warm in that spot.

    She is the lead or boss hen Lee. She was the first to lay and was so kind when the others were just starting to lay she would go into the nest box with them to encourage them. When I first had occasion to nab Lady Jane cos she had a messy bum she shrieked and Auntie Beak made a run for me all puffed out in attack mode. She is a good lead hen so I am very lucky to have her.

    The writing is real hard to see I have found that of you click over it as if you are going to copy you can read it easily. If you want good egg layers they are the types to have. They recommended that I didnt have the while ones as they are to flighty for back gardens. They roughly lay 300 eggs a year anyhow it will give you an idea. Oh I forgot to tell you she went broody twice last year.
