An addition to the Hen House

Meet Adrian, a magnificent white sussex cockerel, who has joined the girls in the Hen House. After losing several hens to the fox over the summer I have also added 6 lohman brown hens to the mix. They are due to start laying in the next few days and hopefully egg production will improve as currently I am only getting 1 egg a day from my remaining 5 hens. The small black hen in the photo is one of the chicks that hatched out earlier in the year – I’m still not sure whether it’s a hen or cockerel – knowing my luck it will turn out to be another cockerel!!!
