Well as of last night I have 2 little chickens out there. So tiny so probably have more bantam in them. There was a bit af a drama though so I am hoping they both survive. I didn't get to check them until close to dark yesterday and one had fallen out of the nest and was huddled next to it. I picked it up and put it back in with its mother but then thought that the same thing could happen again so I got some hay to put in the pen and tipped mumma and babies out of the nest and left them to settle. She sqaurked and carried on for a bit but soon tucked them under her so they should be OK.
After tipping them out I found the third chick dead so the nest needed to be removed and cleaned so glad I did that last night.
Hi I live in the Peel Region of WA. We grew all our vegetables during 2010 and will do the same this year but I also want to get fit enough to wander the countryside, climb big rocks and swim in
lakes and rivers.
