    A lady was getting rid of some old hens, they are about 6 years old. They are fat and i think they are rirs. I felt bad because no one would want them and she cant keep them. SOOOO i agreed to let them free range on the property (after a month of isolation). They are real sweet and like to be held.


    Was i wrong in doing this? I hope not. They are sweet. Just old gals who needed a good home....

    When I get old and fat I'm heading over to your place. I'll be practising my mournful look the whole way and have it perfected by the time I get there [​IMG]
