New hens

On Wednesday 13th April we collected 120 new Colombian Black-tail hens from a poultry farm near Launceston, and brought them down to Bosavern Community Farm. They were 22 weeks old, and were just starting to lay eggs, even laying in the back of the van on the A30. They have settled in well, are wandering all over the field meeting our other hens, and we now have plenty of small "pullets" eggs for sale in the farm shop at only £1 per half dozen.
Venturing outside for the first time in their lives.
