My chickens arrived!

Well, the hens arrived last night - 3 of them. They're ex-battery hens, 2 Hylines and a Maran, which have been on the farm for around 6 months, so they're fully recovered They seem to have already settled in and are feeding well this morning.

Later on, the lady whose farm it is (Lisa) says I can have some young point-of-lay chicks as the expected ones haven't arrived yet. She gave me a huge bowl of food and a sack of beautiful-smelling hay as well. And she wormed and flea-treated them before I left.

I need to find a way of saying thank you. She's on a diet and doesn't drink alcohol, so that was my first two thoughts out the window, lol.

Photos to follow when the rain isn't lashing down.

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
