New arrivals

This season's first chick newly hatched

This season's first chick newly hatched

Yesterday was a tense day as our first chicks of the season started to hatch. We’d incubated 20 eggs three of which were discarded either because of being infertile at day 7 or undeveloped at day 18. We were thrilled that over a 24 hour period, all the remaining 17 hatched successfully!

We had a Dutch family staying with us and we were hoping that the children would be able to meet the new arrivals before they left so it was great that the chicks obligingly arrived on their last day! It certainly made a change from serving fried eggs for breakfast!

Breakfast surprise!
