The last week has seen an increase in our animals. We now have a beautiful Light Sussex cock to go with the two girls, and hopefully we now have two Buff Orpington hens to go with one of our four B.O cocks, certainly the cockerel we have put them with seems to think they are hens so here's hoping. This boy has already proved he is up to the job and our first chicks have now hatched, the eggs came from Light Sussex and Jersey Giants but it seems that only one of the chick will be black, six are yellow and the other one is a light red so we are not sure if there might be a colour link on the sex of these chicks, although they are hybrid chicks it would be handy to be able to sort cocks from hens at an early age as the cocks are destined for a Sunday roast one day.

  1. I just love the buffs! It has been a few years since I have had them.
