Poultry Farm

One of YH's uncle has a poultry farm rearing chicken. When I went to Ipoh last time, he invited us to his farm. I have never been to one before so it was quiet an experience. His uncle explained a lot of things to us. How the eggs were collected, how long before the chicks are ready to lay eggs, how they grade those eggs etc etc. I found out that those chicken are very clever :). They made a lot of noise whenever they sensed the machine distributing their food started to move.......

Those that already can lay eggs will be reared here. Do you see the eggs? His uncle and his workers collected those eggs row by row.

These are still consider little chicks. They are kept here until they are ready to lay eggs. Though they seemed big, they still made 'chip! chip! chip! sound :). Actually it is quiet scary when you see so many of them around you especially when they are walking behind you.
We spot this egg on the floor. It's transparent! Can you see the egg yolk?


Here's a clip of the chicken drinking the water :)

Before we went home, his uncle allowed us to collect our own choice of eggs as 'souvenirs' :). Had a wonderful evening that day......
