I have four old hens from my first flock of twelve. All of my original hens had names. My favorite is Esther who is in the below pictures taking a dust bath.
These are some of the 15 newbies, they are nameless. There are a couple that stand out from the others that I might give a name but at this time there were just to many and they are so similar to name this time around.
The newbies are keeping up their job of laying eggs. I do miss the blue eggs we have had in the past. Dottie will lay 2 or 3 times a week for a few short weeks and then take many weeks off so the blue eggs put a smile on my face when they show up.
Since we have quite a few more hens then before hubs added another roost in the hen house. He also built shelves under the roosts to catch some of the droppings that I can scrape off and throw in the raised garden beds now that the gardening season is done. We are hoping it will help keep the hen house cleaner this winter.
Tonight I am working on sewing up some hot pads out of this fabric for some Christmas gifts.
Blessings from our home in the woods!
