Mary Berry Rallies

Carole from Georgia emailed me today and wanted to know how the poorly, bald bummed hen was doing...the one I had wrapped up on the draining board a week back.
Well here she is .....
Looking a little untidy but bright as a button!
And no more wounds!.....she even laid an egg a few days ago

  17. Saw the title and had a vision of Mary Berry in a crash helmet thrashing Paddy Hopkirks Mini through the Welsh forests.
    Bake Off will never be quite the same now.

  19. A bit of TLC and most hens will arise from the brink I find. Our new ones laid their first egg yesterday - and a reasonable sized one too.

  20. She looks like a tatty version of my two girls. John, how long do hens live, generally? I want to get another dog at sometime after my gorgeous girl left me a few months back. She loved all creatures and never looked at the girls with any dark thoughts. I wouldn't expect to find another dog quite like her. The situation is complicated by the fact the chooks no longer use their coop, free range in the backyard during the day and live up the plum tree at night. I couldn't bear having to lock them up, again so I'll most likely wait until they've lived out their lives before getting another dog. I'm just wondering how long I might have to wait!

    1. All my dogs have been introduced to the hens and sheep and geese. They all ignore each other
      As for hens they live henerally 2-3 years pure breeds can live longer

  21. She looks great! Speaking of Mary Berry, are you watching her new cooking show? We watched it last night. Dave strongly disagreed with her method for cooking fish.
