Thank you Helen. We have just powdered the girls, and the coop. Once caught they are very docile.
We have had our girls just over a week. I was talking to another hen keeper yesterday, who told me that she checks over her girls every day. I wonder how often is recommended? I have tried contacting the supplier, but no answer.
We asked around before getting our girls. One place asked ten pounds for each hen - ex batts who had been free ranging and were well feathered. Another nearby place was asking five pounds for a hen in the same condition. I got ours from a family friend, who chicken farms with free range, and we were...
Two eggs this morning, very pleased with them. We are unsure which of the three is not laying, will have to monitor them tomorrow.
