My Favorite Hens

I found these lovely small birds amusing to watch as they always hold their tails upright. Being a head of a poultry farm, I can describe these little fellows with excellent command and observations. Having long heads make them more appealing and adorable. Their growth rate is very rapid and is known to be naturally resistant to diseases like Marek’s Disease and some other illnesses. These birds lose their temperament very quickly.

Such birds begin laying eggs as early as 4 to 5 months of their age. They are very selective about their nesting spots and sometimes can be very noisy. Sometimes they become very violent and flighty. Despite these negating points, there are some favoring positions also like they are good foragers, independent, tough economic eaters and always stay well aware of their surroundings. Their escaping skills from the predators are remarkable.
