We've had a quiet family christmas, just us for christmas lunch and the grandparents on boxing day. Good job really as the house looks like a bomb site :-)
Managed to make the most of the few nice bits of weather we've had and got out for a walk across the fields. Lovely blue sky, a hard frost on the ground and steam rising off the fields.The chickens are thriving. Everyone is now laying - Bambi the cream legbar hybrid started laying lovely blue eggs. And Rosie the araucana hybrid - is laying beige eggs! Oh well, they did say there was an 80% chance of them being blue layers. Beryl and Bertha have all their feathers back again and have also started laying again, so nearly up to full production - lots of eggs to eat again!
