The Laurel’s First Weigh-In

Every two weeks we weight each hen and give them a health check. We record and monitor the weights as any significant change could be a sign of illness or underlying problem. This was the first time weighing the Laurels, and some of them are still quite wary of us, so a long process to catch, examine and weigh the hens. All seemed well though and their weights were in the range we’d expect, between 1.6 and 2.2KG is normal for an ex-commercial hen.
