Our New Chicks

This week (Tuesday 23rd February) we received 10 eggs in an incubator from The Happy Chick Company, we did not have long to wait as on Thursday the chicks started to hatch out of their shells.  The wonder of birth and the complexity of life acted out in our foyer for all to witness.   

The chicks will be with us until next Monday and we will be keeping the hens and one cockerel to boost our dwindling flock of the last chicks we reared now down to three old ladies who are still very happy and enjoying their new home.
