Busy times

I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted on here.

This time of year is always busy with broody hens and chicks in every corner, the grass to cut and pens and houses to maintain It is also one of the most rewarding times

A few photos of broody hens and the young stock enjoying the fine weather....... at last.

Photos: The latest three broodies.They were only given their eggs last night, so still have three long weeks of sitting to go.

Photos: Taking a well deserved break and enjoying a dust bath. Just 10 days left to go, the young Indian Game X pullet has been excellent.

Photo: Taking time out in the shade. The last few pullets from the first hatch of the year.


( the following two broods to hatch are at the yard )

Photo: The 5 week old chicks, almost old enough to join the others at the yard

Photo: A very protective hen, taking her week old chicks into the coop out of ' harms' way

Photo: Latest hatch, 3 days old.
