Today we have Izzi's sister Cecily Rainey, who runs, Chicken Corner here on the farm chatting to us about an unexpected new arrival!
Morning Cecily! Please can you tell us all about your exciting revelation you came home to yesterday at Chicken Corner!
Cecily- 'Hello! Yes I had a very surprising arrival yesterday on the farm! One of my black pekin hens had gone broody for some time but I was hesitant to have chicks at this time of year! However, I did decide to place one egg in her hen house, which I wrote 'Do not remove' on, to try and differentiate between the other eggs being laid by her fellow hen friends. I didn't think she would ever hatch it but much to my surprise when I went to collect the eggs yesterday afternoon, I was greeted by tiny 'cheeping'. I delicately lifted my hen to reveal a perfect, little, Lavender pekin chick!
Wow, it is so exciting to have another new arrival here on the farm! Thank you for sharing your Chicken Corner tales with us Cecily!
