Congratulations to our egg producers of the month, husband and wife team, Terry and June Fuller of Campvale. Terry and June, with the help of Roy Murphy, attend to the chook’s every need, seven days a week. And because the chooks are so content, reward the Fullers with a bountiful harvest of free range eggs.
The eggs are routinely collected twice every day and immediately placed into a temperature controlled environment to ensure absolute freshness when delivered to our customers. The hens love their cosy nest boxes and rarely lay on the shed floor or outdoors in the grass, but these areas are also checked.
Terry makes sure that the hens have just the right amount of fresh feed and water at all times and now that summer is here, it’s important to have sufficient shade outside on the range. In peak summer temperatures, chooks sometimes duck back inside the shed where they can always find fresh food, water, fans and evaporative cooling.
Some days when it is raining heavily the chooks are not allowed to go out side because they tramp mud back into the shed and dirty the eggs. We have tried, without success, to teach them to wipe their feet. You can see Terry and June’s happy hens on Chookcam this summer.
Well done Terry, June and Roy.
