Exchequer Leghorns - 12 weeks
Today, at 12 weeks old the Exchequer Leghorn chicks gained their freedom. With much excitement they explored their new run - a 30ft x 42ft enclosure, containing a crab apple tree and rowan tree, both with fruits to forage for, an old tree trunk to scramble about on for bugs and a couple of bushes for shade.
The greatest excitement of the day, however came from an ants nest, tantalisingly close, just on the other side of the gate.
