Skeffling Lavender Farm's 2012 Black Penedesencas Breeding group 9 hens one rooster
_I think these enormous Black Penedesencas are magnificent.  The rooster is being gentlemanly and telling the girls where any treats are!   They have already laid big pink eggs in their new digs, so no worries there!

Here's more of my breeders below!
On Sunday night we rearranged about 70 heavy chickens into their breeding pens, what fun!  So the 4-5 weeks clearance for pure bred eggs begins. 

That'll give me time to tidy up the hatching corner in the basement that is full of homemade wine that needs to be bottled.  It's mead from our own honey, strawberry (bought pick your own strawbs, we only got a few of our own and put them in our jam) and our own rhubarb. 

The chickens are all getting on very well since the move.  We never do a major move without being home next day or two to supervise.

I have been checking on them a few times a day, especially the bachelor rooster pen and the pens with young pullets and old hens mixing.  That is the Chanteclers and the Wheaten Ameraucana coops.  A bit of pecking order establishment, but nothing serious.

The girls wouldn't come out, so here the Lavender Ameraucana rooster alone in the run.
