We had a lot of 20 ex bats, they are such fun. We got another 50 and they are coming along fine, a bit bald but they will make good in the end. they do enjoy learning the new life and new things to eat. I hope you get the same good feeling we get when we look at them enjoying life for once. we will never eat a bat egg again and only free range chicken for our dinner.
