Egg count this week -
Chickens - 12
Ducks - 8
Still have a broody Snowdrop but it looks like Dotty may be laying again. I had three chicken eggs this morning but only one duck egg and that was Bubble, who is also looking a little under the weather and quite thin although she seems to be eating well. Thing is she's been through the moult, is growing new feathers and laying eggs. I don't think that's a good thing for any bird, they should be putting all their energy into new feathers or eggs not both at the same time.
All the roosters that we are sure of, (except Legless and Godzilla) are now in the tractor in the orchard. The last six went in yesterday evening after spending the day together out in the field, and there was a fight or two from the other birds but it all seemed to settle down as it got darker. Today when I took the meal worms down, there were two distinct groups standing by the fence waiting. Even though they are 'brothers', there is a distinct divide between them. 'Yellow Curry' is the top roo followed by his right hand man 'Red Curry'. Named after the leg rings and the meal they may or may not end up in.
These are the 'old' roosters.
Here's a nice looking sheep and there is Mr. T. (below left) due to the hairstyle, who is probably a girl and my have to be renamed Misty. And Gerbil, because of her cheek muffs, having a snack with one of the lambs. They really like rose hips!
This ball of fluff is Legless.
This green chicken is a Diesel along with one of the Zebra's
