This caused a bit of hilarity when I handed it over. I like the idea of using something different in arrangements so here’s a savoy cabbage hollowed out and filled with rosebuds. I’m planning to make a few of these at Christmas filled with red roses or carnations and just lightly sprayed with some silver sparkles.
At home the hens are definitely not happy about the weather and the lack of daylight. If I let them out in the morning before daylight their little heads peer at me from their perches as if I’m mad. I can almost hear them ticking me off for getting them out of bed too soon. However if I leave it too long Elsie gets in a proper tizzie. Current egg laying time is about 7.45 and current egg laying location is a corner of the shed where she found some left over bear grass which is now a nest so I have to let her out or else.
Meanwhile the other two – Ivy and Daisy are so ravenous having been cooped up for such a long night they make a beeline for the breakfast bowl. Current breakfast being warm mash – yum!
Egg laying is dropping off a bit from these two girls but Elsie, once she’s settled in the shed, continues to lay an egg every day without fail. So on that basis alone I think she deserves to lay her egg wherever she wants to.
