New hens

On Sunday the next stage in our hen keeping venture was reached. We built our second henhouse, extended the chicken run and went down to Durham Hens to buy 9 new hens. They are settling in well. We got 9 because that was the capacity of the henhouse.

We got 4 columbines (they lay olive green eggs), 2 ginger nut rangers, 2 ambers and a speckeldy.
