After a break of just more than a month, the chickens have finally started to lay eggs again.
George is tall enough now to help me collect the eggs, and very glad to do so.
After collecting the eggs, George helped me turn shredded paper, coffee grounds, composted duck manure and straw bedding into the garden beds. Â I was pleased to see the beds teeming with earthworms. Â It won’t be too long before we’re planting in them.
Blackie McBabTalky the Black Australorp. Â She’s almost five, and doesn’t lay frequently, but the children love her.
It will be good to bake more and enjoy omelettes for breakfast again now that the girls have gotten back into their routine.
