Tasti Unveils New Ads!

Frisky kiwi have baffled the experts by mating months out of season, producing a healthy egg which is due to hatch any day. Ecologist Dr John McLennan said less than 2 per cent of kiwi eggs were laid in autumn. He was shocked to discover the egg in Maungataniwha, in the mountainous back country of the Hawkes Bay. "That means these little critters are going to hatch in the middle of winter in the worst of conditions."
