We support our local community where we can. ThembaCare Hospice Grabouw had a need for 10 raincoats and beanies for their sisters/carers, for when they do their weekly visits to the terminally ill. They have a team of home-based carers who make weekly visits to more than 350 people living with HIV, TB and chronic illness in the townships of Grabouw. Now they can be warm and dry doing their job. We at Elgin Free Range Chickens salute them for their hard work and are proud to recognize them.
Nest boxes designed for eggs to roll forward, the screen shows which boxes have the eggs. It prevents egg eating and keeps them cleaner. Easy to clean nest box - simple pull it out rinse it off. They seem to really like the Astroturf.
So you can let them out and get them in anytime you want. Or call them to safety when predators lurk. Or when you have new pullets free ranging with old flock, and need to get each flock to its own coop.
We ran a competition in partnership with the Grabouw Spar for a lovely EFRC hamper. We would like to congratulate Rene du Toit who was chosen as our winner. In the picture, our rep Patrick is handing over the hamper to Rene.
Our founder Jeanne Groenewald had the pleasure at the AHI SME Indaba yesterday to sit with the incredible Chef Reuben Riffel.
