Yesterday I picked up my hens and settled them into their new hen house and run. And here are Bluebell, Hastings, Ginger and Moira in all their glory. I chose four different varieties a Bluebelle, a Sussex, a Babcock and an Isa Brown (for winter laying).
The Bluebell and Sussex were what the breeder called seconds because they had been pecked and their tails need to grow again. The Babcock (Ginger) reputedly had just started laying and the other three need another couple of weeks then they'll be ready apparently.
And sure enough this morning there was a lot of excited noise coming from the henhouse and Ginger had laid her first egg!
