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.

As we are not allowed any more to keep cockerels, we have to buy fertile eggs, chicks or, as we did recently, point-of-lay hens. We bought 14 from Durham Hens: 6 rhode rocs, 6 ginger nut rangers and 2 light sussexes. They have all settled in and we are awaiting full egg production.
