Just a couple of shots of the birds and chow time in the chicken pasture.
All the different varieties of birds, big and small, seem to get along together. Here the Silkies are in the foreground (silly looking birds that they are) with some Black Australorps and a Speckled Sussex in the background.
These are more of the big birds with the shady growth of trees where all the birds spend time in the hot weather or when they see a bird of prey flying overhead and head for cover. There's a glimpse of the pond beyond the trees.
A characteristic of the Silkies seems to be that when they rest, they like to gather together in a bunch, often in a corner as they are here. (With a photo bombing by a big Australorp.)
Our egg production has slowed down quite a bit recently, but that's natural for the time of year. It will probably be December before the "new girls" start laying.
