more than likely lohmans as they where saved from going to the supermarket... only getting 4 until we get the smallholding, no cockerel...as we have close neighbours,

but we have promised ourselves some rear breeds when we do get the SH and yes..the odd cockerel,

well got them home...its a bit drizzly to get the camera out ..poor little things look like they have come from a concentration camp.... ive seen more feathers on a duster.... it was weird watching them walk on grass for the 1st time ... but they soon got the taste for it  :thumbsup: they have explored the house and one is sitting on the nest box already.... some real Love care and attention needed here... the guy gave me 5 for the price of 4 20 which i thought was superb, as he often rescues as many as he can ...they have only been out for a few days .....

i got one girl who looks a little tired, i guess she may be a little stressed, ile keep my eye on her.... off to get some tonic later..i always found that picked them up ...

anyway... ile get some video later ...

lovely to have chooks again  :excited: :thumbsup:
