Yesterday we took delivery of 4 new Hens. They are black Marans; good layers, very attractive, and (so they say) very easy to keep.
It's the 'good layers' bit that really appeals, in fact one of them actually laid an egg in its cardboard box, on the way home. Thank you dear!
The next hurdle is to see how Richard gets on with them. When first introduced, she was making a lot of noise; and it didn't sound over friendly. Any sign of hostility from her, and her future will NOT be bright; she might end up being given away.
I'm not after pets; I want eggs.
