  3. What a lovely video. My neighbours both have chickens, but I don't - yet!
    What software to do use to produce the final video, as I can't work out how to do that for a blog?

  4. What a lovely film - your girls all look very content and surprisingly happy to perform for the camera. They'll be asking for their own trailer next - just you see!

  6. She made a song and dance about that one! I suppose that effort is something to crow about. That was an unmistakeable announcement from the proud hen!

  9. Oh, thank you, thank you! A gorgeous little vignette of your ladies performing vital duty. I could almost smell that hen-house aroma, it was a lovely memory for me.

  10. Just a thimbleful...

    Funny, I can remember raising my eyebrows and my hair standing on end at the moment of birth ! Shame on you for being such a voyeur - I'm surprised you didn't get a sharp peck on the lens!

  11. Isn't it great - we've got one lady who sits on the nest for ages, and another one who leaves it until the last moment, straight in and out, no messin'!
