Jen and Esther

Yes we have chooks, Austropoles. Our two fat ladies get a new lease on life after several years at a small school farm.
They were very over weight obviously surviving on school lunches.
No one is sure how old they are some even suggested they were around 7 to 13 years!
both had severe scaly foot which we've managed to control with vegetable oil foot baths!
Jen lays the most eggs and Esther every 3 days or so.
You'll be seeing lots of chook photos in the months to come!

She's not happy! We've had to fence off the whole garden not just from the hens but from the native animals
