A Well-timed Easter Surprise...

Remember the eight eggs we put under the little ginger naked neck hen exactly 21 days ago?
Well, guess what! We've got six little chicks hatched out today in time for Easter and one still chipping away inside its shell.

Not my greatest photographic achievement admittedly, but you can see that we have a variety of different colours ranging from brilliant yellow to black. The only egg that didn't hatch was a very big one we think came from a Buff Orpington.

Happy Easter to all.
