HATCHING

We have had 8 chicks hatch so far. A variety of bantam large fowl. The breeds that have hatched out so far are, 3 rode island reds, 1 light sussex, 2 gold tops and 2 mixed breeds.  We have also selected our buff pekin cockerel which will be our breeding cockerel for this years buff breeding pen. We have also a first pair of milfleur pekins delivered today,hoping to hatch some eggs of them soon, and gain some more hens to add to the breeding group. Along with these chicks we have had a further 4 silkies hatch out in the next few days. These are 2 cuckoo marans, and 2 black silkies.
