The chooks arrive....

We took the plunge and drove all the way up the island (1 hour) to find the chook farm. Thank goodness we took Meei!!! It was a squash but lucky we did cause we would have gone the wrong way..

The chook/pig farm was really well run, clean pens and the chooks were all seperated by their age. Every age between one week and 8 weeks, of course the boys wanted the chicks!! No way, I am not waiting 18 weeks for eegs!! At least by getting the 8 week pullets we only have 10 weeks till they start to lay. Give them time to get used to 2 very enthusiastic boys!!! We bought home 6 but have decided while Darren is up at the airport n Thursday that he will get another 4. Decided we'll need at least 10 to give enough eggs for the 3 houses and 2 staff!!!

not a great photo but the girls settling in.........

till next time :0)
