About a 5/6 weeks ago w got 2 hens. They were not layers, just farm chickens from my sister-in-law who lives in Hluhluwe (a small town about 350km north of us). They were still quite young and didn't lay any eggs. One morning a troop of monkeys came through our garden and I can only assume freighting one of our ladies to the point of having a heart attack or stroke.
So we had one little lonely lady who needed some company. Last weekend we went to the farm for a visit and collected her 2 new friends. We now have 3 colourful characters in our back garden. Still waiting on eggs, but I'm sure the first one will come very soon.
