Christmas eggs

Three degrees at 8am. Raining continuously.


But at least with the warmer weather, the hens have called off their strike and today produced their first eggs in what seems like months. Just in time to have decent eggs for Christmas!

Learned something new - didn't know that they go on strike! Christmas eggs - why not!!

Yup! When they're moulting and if it gets too cold...they can draw it out for ages!

I didn't know this, either. Thank you for the little lesson, and the demonstration of beauty in simple things.
