I haven't had chooks for a while - just seemed to have a bit of bad luck. Really missed not having fresh eggs so off I went tot he chook factory and bought 6 chooks. these chooks were at the end of their egg laying life in the commercial world.
Quite a few feathers were missing however after just a couple of weeks we have happy hens who are regrowing their feathers and laying 4 eggs each day.
Always there has to be the hen pecker and this girl is the one in the group. Don't laugh - this chook has been undergoing some special training. Gradually I feel I am encouraging her to be a more pleasant animal.
