Our Chickens

We have recently introduced 12 new Chickens to our little brood, these are Hybrid Hens bred especially for egg laying. Its taken 3 weeks.  As they were only 19 weeks when we got them they took a while to settle in and start laying, but we are now gratefully receiving 3-4 eggs a day – well done girls! just another 9 to go then we shall have lots of eggs on offer.  We’ve still got 6 x of our original lot – as pictured on the right –  who between them all still lay the occasional egg and they have been tasked to train the new additions to the ways of being fed and petted by our guests … and to come to Vicky’s whistle!
