Portrait of a Hen; an egg a day

Ready to lay again! Nikon D7000
2nd April 2012

I cannot remember if this is Tikka or Korma (Korma I think), however she is a good layer.  Korma was a new introduction last year to make sure we had some eggs over the winter.  We have been getting about 5 or 6 eggs a day recently from the 7 hens; they all seem to be laying this year, despite some of them being rather old now (I will post Dory the oldest another day).

She is rather pretty but those big feet made short work of the flower beds.  A quick 'feather cut' the other day sorted out her ability to fly over the gate  (well until she moults again).
