We picked up our new chicks from The Neighbour Gnomes on Saturday afternoon. Popeye had been breeding them the last few months. He worked on a Rhode Island / Isa Brown cross.
Here they are now (enjoying a venison shank bone). They are a few weeks from laying eggs.
We have partitioned the chook shed for the time being. So that the new ones will stay on the right hand side for a few days until they have settled in. Once they are free-ranging as well, we will take the partition down again and they can all mingle freely.
