If you want to know how hot it got during the bushfires........
There are five chooks and they live in a chicken coop about 20m from the family home at Buxton.
The house burnt down in the fires, but the coop, survived, though the flames reached right up to the wire fence.
The chooks owner, Anne said, "Those five chooks kept laying, but the really incredible thing is that, when we cracked open the eggs, they were hard."
They had cooked in their shells!!
