Last weekend, it was a case of many hands making for light work, as we transferred the early chicksfrom one incubator to another one, so that the unhatched eggs could have a bit of peace.


































A few days later and here's their new pad. A real home from home.

Incidentally, I've hatched my first non white chick of the season. I set 7 Welsummer x Light Sussex and 2 pure Welsummer under a broody and the eggs have hatched over the last few days. There's no sign of any Welsummers and out of the sex linked crosses, there's only one brown female and all the rest are white. With this sex linked cross, the male chicks are white and the females brown.
