Bottoms up in the garden

With the onset of winter the walnut tree has been shedding its leaves and when we let the hens out in the afternoons they like to scavenge amongst the rustle of the leaves.

With their brown colouring and the colour of the leaves the surroundings could almost be the perfect camouflage.  Regardless, the hens must be about their business, with bottoms up, seeking and retrieving whatever they can find of interest.

They do keep us entertained with their antics and we are very grateful for the four eggs they provide for us each day.
