    14 eggs a day!!!Not good for your cholesterol levels ya know!!
    That's kind of how we ended up with 12 though....went to a farm with the kiddies & it wasn't my fault the shop were selling 10 week old chooks that were particularly pretty & only 2.50 each!!O.K so we already had 10,but what's another 2 (or 4!!)??
    Good Luck with them~hope you don't have too much fighting between the ranks & that they don't all go broody on yer.....is there a limit at your lottie as to how many?

    They are seperated from the other hens annd have a run within a run and there own small home which I've spent all day building for them.

    Funnily enough, the new younguns try to have a go at the olduns, not the other way round although I did see Number 1 hen with a beakfull of feathers where the newbie had stuck its head through the wire.

    No limits at the allotment as far as I know..........though the way I'm going it would have probably been better if their had been!

    You're a glutton for punishment aren't you!!! Good on yer mate, they'll be well looked after by you I'm sure.

    By the way, as I've not been around for a bit (thanks for your message Snadge), did I miss the last news about Tush and the egg?
    My girls found their way into my heart and now they nest there
