Hi,

Are you running down your flock or are you planning on replenishing it?

Sadly i wont be getting any more now. I love my hens, but with big girls have had so many problems with egg laying etc it has put me off. My banty girls were better, but over the years i have lost so many and it's heartbreaking. Jess who is 7 in May was hatched from eggs i had sent from Al in 2010, she has never had a soft shelled egg in all those years, it just goes to show that if you get a hen from a very good breeder ie not cross bred which i think alot are these days, they will be with you for years. The 3 i have left will stay until the end of their lives, they are spilt rotten, but i love them dearly )like(

That's sad but i am sure you will have lots of fond memories too. I got like that with horses. It becomes an emotional rollercoaster. One day I was competing and having great fun, the next my horse was lame or at the Vet School. Three horses and 21 years later I gave up. I look back and smile but if I think too hard I feel a bit sick about the emotional turmoil it sometimes became.

Enjoy your girlies for now.
