Maggie May Our very first and most expensive Chicken
Meet Maggie May our very first chicken. We raised her alongside a baby turkey we had found. Sadly the turkey died at around six months old from a leg injury. Maggie is a heritage breed Black Astralorp hen. A year or so back she got sick from worms and cost us $85 in vet bills. She's still here and turning three on the 1st of November this year. She's our favourite and the brightest of the entire now six hens we have here. I wrote a story for the Rural Living about her titled "No Poultry Emotion" lets just say lesson learned - the hard and expensive way.
