My Hens have been sharing the load and we have successfully given birth to four little chicks. I can't tell who is who but the hens are now called Ebony, Sooty and Inky thankfully named by Lisa from Laughing Orca. We have started fencing a bigger yard for them and we will be starting on the new chook pen soon. I called into my local produce store and was asking about his day old chicks he normally gets in he said they have gone up in price to $11 retail each. I was amazed but I suppose with the rise in fuel and grain they are one of many things going up in price and I think there could also be a demand for the chicks as people are tending to lean to the self sufficient live style.
This is Belvedere ( also name by Lisa, thank you Lisa) our handsome rooster, he is in the shadow there because he doesn't want to take all the glory for the four little weeds that are now running around the pen.
I wouldn't mind breeding turkeys if anyone has turkeys could they tell me if they are just as easy as chickens to look after and breed from.
