Chickens finally!

We finally have some (hopefully laying) barnevelder hens on our property! As the old isa browns died off we have been wanting to replenish with barnevelders but they have been very hard to source locally. We found some 1st year layers at Parkes and my hubby went to pick then up today! I really hope there will be fresh eggs to be had over the coming days! 
We also picked up some young roosters to fatten up. They are a bit cute which might make them a little difficult to eat! I couldn't get a good photo as they were busy running from the toddler!
The one remaining isa brown chook is giving them a bit of a hard time but hopefully they will all settle down after roosting tonight.
