New chicks!

Our new chicks! So far we have a dozen baby chicks, with more on the way. A mix of our own Oak Tree chicks and also some from eggs bought in. We are working on developing new improved dual purpose chickens so we select the best from our own birds to breed from, and also buy in some eggs from outside. The little black chick is a Plymouth Rock – beautiful, isn’t it?
