Both rejected by their mum's they have now come to live with us and with a bit of care and attention I hope they will become the backbone of our 'flock'. At the same time the chicken run has been built and we are now awaiting the delivery of six ex-battery hens, a happy retirement for them and some great eggs for us!
The game farm has now kicked into gear and in the last week we have set up the main indoor shed ready for the Pheasant chicks that will soon be emerging from the eggs we are collecting, at the same time we have set up the first 45 sheds on the 'field', ready for the Partridge that are due to arrive on the 20th, all we have to do now is connect the water and the gas. It's starting to get busy!
