The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
The girls have been complaining. They’ve noticed too many posts about vegetables and bees and too few about hens.
Did you know that the colour of a hen’s egg relates to her ears?
You didn’t know hens had ears!
Well I obviously haven’t done my job very well then.
A hens ears don’t stick out but are quite visible.
The ‘ear’ is a curved flat area behind the hen’s eye. It’s a strange wrinkled skin area.
And the colour of the ear is associated with the egg colour.
This creamy coloured hen of our has white ears and lays white eggs.
Her black, grey and red sisters all lay off white (or brown) eggs.
The nosy hens are now laying larger eggs.
Hope they’re happy to be in the spotlight!
What colour eggs do your hens lay?
