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.

We have our first chicks of the year hatched by natural means. No electrically powered incubator here, just a hen in a nest box. Three chicks hatched from 5 eggs. Sadly, two have died, but the remaining one is alive and well.
We have another hen on eggs which are due to hatch next week.
