It’s a full house!

We suffered a few unexpected losses on the chicken front last year. So in June we decided to go ahead and try to incubate our own chicks. We started with four and have now grown the flock to ten!

In the last couple of weeks one of the older chicks has now started laying, and we have our first egg carton full of tasty fresh eggs! Well they might not look that tempting, but they do taste amazing.

It took her a couple of tries to realise the middle of a field or stable arent the ideal places to lay an egg, bless her!

This year we hope one of the hens will take a few fertilised eggs under her wings and do the hatching for us. Exciting times.
