I am delighted to introduce Ethel, Maureen, Atila the Hen and Balti!
Ethel and Maureen are named after our Mums and the other two, well, the names just made us laugh!
We are planning to let them free range in the day and use the coop for the night, but at the moment they have to stay in the coop while they settle in, and it gives a chance for Luna to get used to them too! We’re just hoping she doesn’t try to play with them like she plays with / destroys everything else around here once we let them out 😳
It’ll take them a couple of weeks to settle in before they start laying, but fingers crossed we won’t be buying any more eggs from now on!
