I visited the chooks today.  It's not pretty.  But it's interesting...



Teen age chooks.  On the prowl.

I gave a few to a friend and she says they started laying "small" eggs last week.  She is an optimist though.

We have one "teenager" that is also laying little eggs at the moment - so could be about right.

Nice work.
