    Hello everyone! I have finally realised that I should join this forum and not just enjoy all the hints and tips it offers!
    I have kept chickens for some years but only recently has a broody hen hatched some chicks and brought a new joy / and worry / into my life. I currently have 2 young hens sitting side by side on a nest of eggs but although sitting on the eggs seems natural to them, neither knew what to do when an egg hatched and so the baby chick ended up dying......[​IMG] It seems that my kitchen may turn into a chick nursery, bringing more anxiety into my life......!
    I already have an assortment of animals, mostly rescues. Cats, dogs, horse and donkey. I hope not to get any more turn up on me! But I enjoy my chickens so much........
