Rainy day eggs

Andrew spent yesterday afternoon constructing a chicken run, so we can have them confined to the back corner of our garden, but it appears they can get out of the gate- it's expanding bamboo trellis. I thought I might have to put a second one over it so the gaps at the bottom weren't too big. Anyway, it's a rainy old day here at the moment, so I don't mind that they escaped, and all 3 sat under the passionfruit vine to keep dry. It appears that they each layed an egg while in there! So we now have 3 laying hens. There's one long funny shaped one, and one small one in there.

Thanks for the link on my blog! We are just debating how to do the chicken run for our new chickens. Can't wait til ours start laying... but they are only 4 to 6 weeks old, so a whiles yet!!
