My Black Hen

My black hen, Dot, has been the mainstay of our chook pen since the start of April. She is the only one of our three chooks who is laying eggs.

The other two hens have been moulting. There are feathers everywhere and pale and drooping combs. We are hoping that one of the others will start laying again soon so Dot can have a break.
