The pecking order among the Famous Five is clearly changing … both yesterday when I gave them some rice (+ Flubenvet + Limestone flour) and today when I gave them some greens for the first time, Charlie was put in her place by Connie, so she appears to have slipped down the order a place. I think she’s my favourite (is that allowed? 😉 ) … she has a lovely character, so friendly.

It took the Five a few moments to realise greens were meant as a treat …

I gave the Vicarage girls something to distract them … it’s easier see how different their feathers are when they are side by side …

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.

    July 2018 … Four new girls arrive, two LS bantams and two Mille Fleur Pekins.

    June 2018 … We had an extended heatwave, with daily temperatures in the 30s.
