TWO NEW ARRIVALS
I wanted to get a couple of new hybrids who will lay regularly for me through this winter. My two new ISA Warrens are 18 weeks old and point of lay. They have been debeaked which is slightly annoying since they were obviously not destined for cages. I guess the hatchery debeaked all their hybrids en masse regardless of where they might end up. Hens kept in cages have to be debeaked to stop them pecking each other. My two have settled in very well and on the first day I let them out of their run one of them insisted on coming inside. Compared to my other hens they are so easy to handle and very endearing and are now being looked after my number one cockerel, my Fayoumi.
