Loads of Eggs

Recently we have been getting twice as many eggs. We don't know whether it is because they are laying after we have collected or if they are laying twice a day every other day and then the next day they lay one egg or none.

Is it because they are only allowed in the run still and eating more food?

Has that been happening to your chickens 🐔?

Cakes

I like baking so I decided to bake some muffins. I baked some breakfast muffins and some blueberry muffins. In both of them I used our eggs. I shared the blueberry muffins out with quite a few people. Every one who had one said it was extra lovely.

On the breakfast muffins I cracked a rather small egg and I got a double yolk!

Bird Flu

Due to bird flu, everyone who has outdoor birds e.g. hens, ducks and geese need to keep them in or put them in their run as long as it has a cover for a month/21 days, but to make sure I would keep them in for 28 days. The main way they could get the flue is by poo/faeces but there are other ways as well.

Hopefully if you have any birds they are going to be ok (they should ok be if you follow the instructions but if they do I hope they get better)

More information from the Government is on their website.

!!!!!!!!!!!!THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you 😊 to all that have been on Lucy’s website and said ‘NO’ to a new chicken farm. It is helping earth’s chickens. Despite everyone on Lucy’s website this what Lucy has said,

“In the case of our petition to Staffordshire council, regarding the recent approval of a chicken factory farm, they have made the decision to remain in acceptance of the proposition despite the over 70,000 strong petition, and now the building and preparation for the farm is under way.”

For those who don’t know about battery hens, they are chickens that are born in a factory were the get put in a cage with no space. They can only get water and food. They are forced to lay eggs. When the can’t lay any more they send loads of chickens off to be killed.

They lose most of there feathers, go really skinny and their comb is floppy and not red. Basically they aren’t looked after.

You can still sign to help raise awareness of battery hens. THANK YOU
