The old girls are getting on in years. It seems like a short lifetime ago that they were born.
Over winter they like to take a break from producing an egg a day and who can blame them. But just when you are starting to think about introducing some young chicks into the mix, they go and do this.
It just goes to show, that if you treat them right, a good breed will lay for years. Forget this 18 month nonsense of the factory system. This film has been dug up out of the archives.
