We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

Quite a few of our hens are moulting at the moment. One in particular has shed a considerable number of feathers and now has a new set growing through. She is called Houdini and is our oldest hen. At 4 and a half years old, she is retired from egg laying but we kept her as she is one of our first hens. You can see in the photo above her new feathers growing through.
