The Garden Seat

The heatwave continues across Victoria (and many other places) and there’s no relief expected until the weekend.

Sadly, two of my bantam hens died yesterday and today is forecast to be even hotter 😦

Chicken feed

I think it’s time I started using this old feeder . . . last night I discovered one of my bantams had hatched 8 adorable chickens πŸ™‚

 

Natural progression :)

New Babies

These chickens look as though they are hanging on to Mum’s every cluck!

There are actually six but one has its head down at the end of the row and one was hiding under Mum’s wing πŸ™‚ I started hatching chickens (under bantams and in an incubator) about 25 years ago and still love watching the new babies emerging into the world.
