Australorpe X Rhode Island Red Hen

The newest arrival at Auriga is a Australorpe X Rhode Island Red hen. A great layer who stands out in our flock of pure bred Light Sussex hens. The Light Sussex hens object to the colder weather so this little hen plus a new pure bred Australorpe keep a few eggs rolling in over the coldest months.

Auriga Pool Party

It’s New Years Day and a holiday at Auriga. Hot temperatures mean that a pool party at the dam was in order for everyone with swimming and sunbaking. It’s a hard life being a llama around here 😉

The llamas enjoying sunbaking and swimming during the hot Australian summer.
