They don’t look like much now, but in 21 days these beauties will be chicks. One of our old hens, Victoria is an excellent mum and she’s getting a bit broody so we thought we’d put her ample, feathery posterior to good use.
We got a dozen fertile eggs from a local chicken breeder for the princely sum of $4. They are mixed breed shaver/barnyard eggs so while not a specialist meat breed they should be fine for a first crop of eating chickens.
We’ll keep you posted on their progress.
