New Chicks

When we added Dominickers to the farm one of our hopes was that we’d be able to hatch some chicks and thus help preserve this old and endangered breed. ┬áThat mission has now been accomplished.

We now have 5 little Dominques, being mothered by the Dark Cornish hen who hatched the eggs.

Last night I put 11 more eggs under a broody hen (another Dark Cornish), so if all goes well we’ll have even more in 21 days.
