Out here in the "sticks" (bush) it is always a bit of a challenge to get the out-of-the-ordinary things, that don't belong to the bush! So when I managed to get my hands on a few 1 year old laying hens, I was so excited, finally, we will be getting eggs everyday, YAY! Compared to getting a few eggs every so often from our regular Zulu chickens!
When they arrived they looked a little scruffy, but nothing a bit of love and care can't sort out.
They are so friendly, as we come into the run, the layers race to follow us.
My 1 year old daughter has really taken to them.
