It’s been a while since I’ve moaned about the lack of eggs from the ex-bats. That’s because for the last couple of weeks they’ve started laying with avengeance! We’re now getting between ten and twenty-one eggs a day. Every day. I’m backing to trying to work out what to do with all the extras! Still, they are lovely. Interestingly some of the ex-bats are laying in the chicken ark, where the original hens live, and some are laying in the shed we set up for them. I haven’t determined if they’ve actually moved in, but there’s obviously not enough space for all of them!
The hens all look in great shape too, and it’s now impossible to tell apart the two original brown non-ex-bats from their more recently added companions.
Also, we should probably stop calling them ex-bats, as really they’re full recharged now!
