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
The Rhode Island Red chicks that hatched on the May bank holiday were moved to the allotment recently where we kept them for a few days in a chick run where they could acclimatise to being outdoors. After a few days they were released from the run to integrate with the flock. They stay together as a group but otherwise have quickly learnt where the food is and are fitting in well.
