Recently we got some new hens.  Lovely Black Leghorns, three of them. 

Today I discovered these beauties tucked in the back of a nest.  There's been no laying whilst they've been settling in.  Fern's comb is bright red and floppy again, so she's the one.  Aren't they lovely milky white eggs?

Here are the girls.  Fern, Oprah and Emerald.  (Emerald is in front there, with the lovely green feathers on her back - she reminds me of a Tui.)
