Chickens (Chapter 2)
This page is different to Chickens (Part 1). On this page the most recent work is placed at the top of the page.
|While Countryfile were in the school one of the chickens laid a double shelled egg. We have never seen this before. It happens when a second egg catches up with the first egg inside the chicken and the firt egg gets recoated with eggshell.|
New vests for anyone working in the chicken areas
|Putting theory to the test. Evidence seems to suggest that chickens will lay more eggs if music is being played to them. We will test this theory out properly soon.|
New homes found for 8 of our cockerels
|After Halloween we brought in our pumpkins for the chickens to eat. They are also natural wormers fior the birds|
We now have a new problem……. The chickens have started eating their own eggs.
So we have devised a cunning plan. We have blown some eggs and filled them with mustard.
Yes mustard. So next time Mrs Hen feels like a little pecking she will be in for a rather nasty surprise.
These photos show us blowing the eggs and filling them with mustard. Thank you to Dilwyn of Gwynedd Poultry Club for the tip.
