What the hens are doing at the moment: 
The rooster and Elvis are sand bathing in all of our plots.
Agneta shares the brooding responsibility with Babs. 
(But still no chickens, so today I borrowed some of the eggs down to the basement and looked through their shells with an egg lamp. And there, in the dark, I could se at least one chicken heart beating close to the shell! So we will wait. For some more days.)
