New Boarders at Duffus House
There were some early arrivals at Duffus House for the start of the term - eight plump brown hens settled into their new house and surroundings ready for the return of the boys who would be looking after them during term time. Mr Baird introduced a Chicken Duty Rota and had some eager recruits who first learned how to handle the chickens, then how to look after them. Duties include setting them out in the morning and gathering them in at night time, cleaning the run and the chicken coop and collecting the all-important eggs,
The chickens are currently laying well and eggs are available for a suggested £1 per half dozen donation which will go towards their upkeep with any left over being donated to a local charity.
