We now have 28 chicks - 7 Hybrids, 3 Welsummers, 6 Araucanas, 3 Vorwerk, 4 of Liz's Black Orpingtons and Keith came home on Saturday with 5 Silver Laced Wyandotte week old chicks to replace the eggs that had all failed, he knew how much I wanted some.
Now we have to see how many are hens.
We let the original three chicks out into the big wide world on Saturday. Not too much grief, lost a few wing feathers to Dotty but generally just snapped at. They seem very happy exploring and the Eglu has now been moved nearer the main coop and run up onto the platform. By next weekend I hope they will be able (and accepted) to move into the coop proper.
