Roosters raid Dunedin rest home

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:40 pm on 18 July 2019

The Leslie Groves Hospital rest home in the Dunedin suburb of Wakari has a couple of unexpected new residents: three Plymouth Rock roosters

 Facility manager Max Reid is on the line to explain how this came to pass - and whether rooster soup will be on the menu tonight!

(Spoiler alert - it won't)

Feeding the Plymouth Rock roosters which have made themselves at home at Leslie Groves Hospital in Wakari, Dunedin, are (from left) Margaret Pennycuick (84), Grant Moody (89) and Patricia Siegle (90).
