The young cockerel

The young cockerel is beginning to look very smart and hopefully we will be able to hatch out some eggs in the Spring. That is if egg production increases – at the moment I am only getting 1 or 2 eggs a day from 8 hens – a very poor return! I think I will have to invest in some more hens too.

Elsewhere on the farm we now have young calves in the new shed and John is busy converting another of the buildings to take the 2 sets of twin calves as they are rapidly out growing their current pen.
