A Job Done Well and Faithfully


There's a certain order to life in the henhouse...

...particularly in a flock of 26 birds.


The smallest of the hens are two bantams, Evie and Ivy.


They are quick and resourceful, unwavering in mood and temperament.

Every day, the tiny sisters take on the biggest job of all...

...gathering up the eggs, no matter to whom they belong...

... safely brooding them beneath their tiny bodies.

Getting Older

How old are you, Mr. R?

49...almost 50.

Don't you love getting older? I do.

What do you mean?

I mean I've got the rest of my life ahead of me. I can't wait to see what happens.
