The hen rescue is cancelled again. Not due to Bernard Matthews this time or DEFRA but the farmer wants to hang onto the hens a bit longer for their eggs. Poor ladies, almost free....then this!
There *should* be a different rescue on the 13th/14th March so hopefully everyone will get their ladies from that one.
It's so frustrating though especially with so many new homes lined up.
Past few days I've not done a lot. I borrowed Ruth's incubator and set 9 Pekin Bantam eggs in it. 7 of ours and 2 lavender ones of Ruth's.
I am so hoping we've done it right and they'll hatch into lots of Pekin hens :-) (prob all be cock birds that i'll have to rehome)
We got another Pekin egg yesterday but I let Mini eat it as a treat.
