Hatched 6 Buff Pekin chicks yesterday, for sale if anyone would like them for £4.00 each, unsexed very pretty lovable chicks, make very good pets in the garden and easy to rear, especially this time of year indoors.

Monday 21.11.11

Monday morning and we have the rain which was needed to put out the bonfire yesterday. Well better late than not at all. At least the neighbour cannot complain now.  Work which should have got done yesterday is now done, so the Turkeys have a nice clean bed to look at, they actually perch at night, but they smell a lot nicer now.  I am going to bed with my favourite poultry book, I read a very interesting chapter last night part of which was about windfall apples, apparently the acid in the apples which all hens love to eat will keep them thin so not recommended to build the hens up for a hard winter.

today`s thoughts

Well its November and really quite mild so the eggs are still being laid by quite a few of our hens, so hatching eggs still available.  I will be listing some on my friends site, http://www.fertilehatchingeggs.com/ as Dave has his poultry on our field so he can collect and post the eggs very quickly.
please have a look at the site, its being updated daily.

We have 25 of the ross/cobb meat birds ready to go to new homes, these are 5 weeks old and now able to go outside, well grown, if you would like them dressed we can arrange it for you.  It is a good way to have chicken to eat and you know what food they have eaten, fresh chicken at its best.
