We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

Moving the chicks outdoors
We have now moved the first batch of chicks that hatched in May outdoors into the back garden. They will stay there until they are big enough to go to the allotment to join the flock. Given the speed at which they grow, that won't be a long time coming.
We think 4 are cockerels. We will keep one but need to relocate the other 3. We will trade or sell them or, if necessary, slaughter them (they will usefully be fully grown by Christmas).
