Just a glimpse

Yesterday there were some hatching sounds in BB’s box and today all seven chicks have arrived! This time around you may remember that we exchanged her eggs for those of the bigger birds but she sneakily laid another one when she started to sit. So, six regular chicks and one silkie. Here’s a glimpse of most of her offspring although wee silkie remained under mum for the photo shoot!

    Silkies make really good mums. Maeve (white silkie) and Bobblehead (black silkie) hatched out 8 at Easter. They sat on the eggs together and then co-parented – it was really sweet.

      How lovely! Our muscovies are great at sharing parental duties – and nests on occasion. With such a large group as we have at the moment, this works really well. I shall pop over and meet Maeve and Bobblehead soon!
