The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
The days are getting longer. It’s not as dark when I leave the house in the mornings. This means only one thing.
It’s egg time.
Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken lay a little egg for me.
I haven’t had one since Easter and now it’s half past three!
Chickens don’t lay unless there’s a long day of light. So soon they’ll hopefully get the notion.
Laying an egg is a strange process. We have three hens at present. They are Japanese bantams. A small variety for our small back yard. They are feisty and funny at the same time.
At one point last year the appeared to have stopped laying but the we discovered the basket above.
They even disappeared themselves too.
That basket lives under a chair. They obviously like it!
Here they are in action!
