Six Chooks and a Crake

Six Chooks and a Crake

One of the things about living at Kiwarrak Country Retreat is daily encounters with wildlife, our latest sighting is a cute little water bird called a Crake.

He or she scurries from bush to bush making its way from the bottom dam up to the chook yard every day. I come up swinging the chook bucket and 6 chooks and a tiny Crake are waiting for me.

The chooks are noisy and pushy but the little Crake hides in the bushes waiting til they have half finished and then when it thinks I am not watching darts in and has a good feed! Too elusive to photograph I have just included the chooks.

It doesn’t lay us any eggs but the sight is worth sharing a few grain of corn with.

To sample some of our girls’ free range eggs, book your mid north coast holiday at Kiwarrak Country Retreat in the Manning Valley and order one of our delicious BBQ breakfast hampers!
