New chickens.

On Wednesday 29th April we welcomed onto the farm a new flock of 120 point-of-lay Colombian Blacktail laying hens. They all survived their journey from Launceston, are settling in well, and are already laying more then 30 little pullet eggs a day (available in our farm shop at £1 per half dozen). These have boosted our hen numbers to 345, and soon we should be producing about 250 eggs per day.
Taking their first tentative steps outside in thick mist.
