Today we said goodbye to our Bettys... they have been so good to us, providing us with fresh eggs everyday. They're getting older and tired, and are now laying inconsistently. We were told they would only lay for 12 months... we had more faith... they've been laying for 18 months! We decided to give them to our neighbour, who will get a few more months of egg laying, which will be perfect for his small family. We will be without hens for two weeks or so, allowing us time to fix the coop and clean it thoroughly. We will be buying 15 (5 more).
So, any suggestions for a name? We're still partial to 'Betty'... but maybe it's time for something different... new batch = new name? It's a one name fits all Send us your suggestion... you never know, we might choose yours!
