    Hi, I live on a tropical island and have two sets of hens. The one group are island mixed hens who are free range and who give me very few eggs.

    The other group are from New Zealand and are Hylines they give me an egg a day.

    I would love to hear from other people about their hens. I have joined today to find out about diseases.

    Excuse the name Zalf, it is very unappealing, but it was the first name I could think of that I knew would not be taken. I am retired female and of Caucasian appearance.

    Cheers
