New Arrivals

We have quite a few loyal customers for our free range chicken eggs and sometimes have to disappoint so when we saw an advertisement for almost point of lay hens at our local Mole Avon Farm Shop, we decided to buy some more.

I phoned yesterday and they were delivered this afternoon complete with a free bag of chicken food.

They arrived at about 5 p.m. and seem quite traumatised at the moment.  Not surprising really as they have been shut in a crate and then dumped into a completely new environment.   At the moment we have just given them some food and water and left them to settle in.   From past experience it will only take a few hours before they are strutting their stuff about the place.

If all goes well they should be laying eggs in a couple of weeks.
