It is so hard taking pictures!

I find it very hard to take photographs of the chickens - they just don't seem to want to pose for me! But here are a few from last week. Honey looks VERY fat on her pictures - they are taken in the afternoon when she has a bulging crop - it really does swing from side to side! But it goes down overnight. Speckeldy Selina is the 'queen of the chickens' according to my son - she is definitely the grandest chicken!

Eggs anyone?

I have too many eggs! The girls have been laying and laying and laying! I think I need to find some new ways of using eggs in baking. I want to try making ice cream if I can find a good recipe that doesn't require an ice cream maker, and also mayonnaise would be good. I've been doing lots more baking, and giving eggs away - I gave 18 away today, and still have a good number in the fridge!

The chickens are all happy and healthy - no problems to report which is always good news!
