We’ve got six new members of the family! Six little bundles of fluffy down that is gradually growing into feathers. Six little bundles, only about two weeks old now, so small that several will fit on your hand at once.
The chicks were hatched at the local library during the school holidays for kids to partake of the experience and then adopted by us to raise to adulthood. The black ones are Australorps, two are White Sussex (we think), and the other two are Isa Brown. When they’re old enough they’ll join our five chooks in the henhouse and, if I’ve chosen well, we’ll have six more egg-layers.
Or failing that, coq a vin!
