Ugh, I'm in a sad sad state at that. Have just moved, no room to bring any sort of our previous four (and no) legged housemates with us. So I have three empty fish aquariums I'm about to list for sale sitting in kit form all over my living room. Would have loved to have posted these things before having to move, but too sad to think about it now.

That's what I thought, Billy. All the hens that were in the shed looked far healthier than any I've had before. I even had 2 eggs today, although one was broken. probably due to being laid on the roosting bars rather than the next box

I let the new girls out in to the big run yesterday afternoon and let Gertrude & Daisy out into the garden. I've had 2 whole eggs and one broken one from them so far.

They look really happy!
One of mine (the old hen, Martha) is moulting in a fairly major way for the first time - she looks incredibly scruffy (and a bit cold!) The new feathers are beginning to come through thankfully, or I'd have to knit her a jersey!

They seem to be getting along ok. I've left them in the big run today with the 2 "old girls", Gertrude & Daisy. No problems with Polly & Molly but Dolly has had a bit of a set to with G & D this morning but all seem to have settled this afternoon.

(oh and if you want to know which one is which, in the picture it is Dolly, Molly & Polly)

What kind of chicken are they? Other than battery ones, that is.
