Make them love you with food.

new SussexHere are the newest additions to our chookyard, 3 Light Sussex hens. Gaining their trust right from the word go is high on the agenda, and this is me winning them over with sunflower seeds. A few days of seducing them with tasty tidbits and they’ll be running to me, instead of running away. It means I can be a better mum if they hang around because then I can cast my eye over their condition. It also means that when I need to pick them up it’s a no drama, no stress thing. Trust me, its the way forward.
