Hatching Plans

One of two new arrivals – a silkie x light sussex chick

In order to save up for this summer’s programme of rearing and fiddling about on the hill, I was working at the local elections yesterday. Starting at 6:30 am and finishing after 10pm, it was a long day as a polling clerk, spent crossing names off a list and explaining how to put numbers on a ballot card instead of a cross.

By the time I got home, I found that I had made a nice little sum of money but had spent a lovely day indoors and had missed the hatching of my first clocker bantams, which have been in the incubator for three weeks. Combined with a few other bantam related mongrels and stragglers I’m accumulating at the moment, these chicks will become part of a team of feathered incubators for projects over the next couple of years.

In the meantime, they’re going to need some care to get up and grown.
