Our two new hens, the light sussex ladies seem to be settling in well, we let them all out of the run today to free roam around the garden. They found their way onto the well rotted manure heap at the side of the garden, they looked like they were having a great time! They've also continued to lay, very pale eggs compared to the dark brown eggs we get from the welsummers and marans. We have one welsummer in the "sin bin" to try and get her to stop being broody! And one of our little broody marans is sitting on a clutch of five eggs so fingers crossed around the 20th of August we should here the "cheap cheap" sound of little chicks!
