Chickens -2 +30!

June 28th, 2010 by Heidi

Since we moved we have lost both our roosters, one simply disappeared, we assume he met something fiercer than him, then last week the remaining rooster, one of the original ‘John Waynes’, seemed hurt.


Count your blessings!

The first and most important thing I need to say is thank you to my friends, I appreciate your love and support more than you know. I never meant to cause anyone any worry.


Very Free Range

We have had to graduate from egg hunting to chicken hunting as a couple of our Chanteclers have decided to sit on the eggs they are hiding all over the farm!


Fluff ‘n’ feathers

June 15th, 2009 by Heidi

Friday afternoon I started hearing peeping from the next bantam hen sitting on a nest. By the time Steve got home we had one fluffy little chick and one who was getting close to dried off and fluffy. By Saturday we had three lovely little chicks.

What a weekend

March 9th, 2009 by Heidi

These days it seems that weekends disappear in a flash and by Monday I need a rest! Saturday morning we ventured out to Seedy Saturday. I was on my best behaviour as I have already ordered most of the seeds we will need, well probably more than we need, but Steve choose a couple of packets and we found some other interesting stuff, but I will save more on that for tomorrow’s post.


Very sad news

We have just candled the rest of the eggs and there is no life.

The second of the two hatchlings is still with us, we have some doubts about his health but we have no past experience to judge him against.

Right now I am thinking I should have waited till my little bantam went broody.
