The Hens - my Girls!

28th December 2013

The hens have at last ventured outside their henhouse into their run! 
What brave girls! 

Hen no 1 is the first to brave the Outdoors World of the Run...
while No 2 looks out...
and joins her sister hen.
No 3 joins them...while 4 thinks about it


and  takes position on the runway...
...getting ready for take-off

no 5 plucks up courage....
enticed by Ron & Baz feeding the other hens nice fresh worms



Finally no 6 taxies to the runway....
and we have Lift Off!
