It has been awhile since we have seen an egg at Brookwood Shire. The days are darker and colder and molting has begun. Well, Amber began molting early and she is mostly done, but now it is just too cold and dark…she will wait until Spring I think.
She is too busy enjoying dust baths now in any case.
There are lots of feathers in the coop.
And poor Beatrix is looking quite ridiculous. She is too busy growing new feathers to lay any eggs.
Prudence looks a bit better, but has also stopped laying.
And I am starting to find her feathers here and there.
She too will be busy growing new feathers.
As well as enjoying her dust baths.
I am glad they are molting now before it gets too cold. They will have nice new feathers to start the winter. And who knows, they might even get back to laying some eggs!
