As a side note, Keith told me the other night that I had made 'a decent cup of tea'. I didn't think my tea making had been that bad for the past twenty four years!!
I had a giant egg from somebody last week, to give some perspective the one on the right is a large egg from one of the Marans and the Marans lay eggs that can compete with the biggest you will find in the shops! So the one in the centre is huge! The one on the left is from one of the Barnvelders. The big egg made a nice scrambled egg breakfast and turned out to be a double yolker.
Egg count last week-
Chickens - 41
Ducks - 25
Geese - 0
At least Zita seems to broken out of her broody spell. Catherine is still determined to nest and hisses and 'barks' at me when I collect the chicken and duck eggs.
Pecky has been a bit off colour lately, she's the oldest and an ex-batt, my last original chicken so I'm hoping she will be fine and it's just the cold weather.
