A couple of years ago we came into some lovely young pekin bantam chickens who spent several days with us at the Gardening Australia Expo in 2010 — and were so relaxed about it they laid eggs every day and seemed to love the attention.  Since then they’ve been having a wonderful life at the CERES Permaculture and Bushfoods Nursery in Brunswick East, where they keep the company of Barry, a pekin rooster.  And as these things happen, one of them has just become a mother!  We took down a VEG chook tractor so she can raise her babies in peace.  How cute!!
