First chicks of the season


One of the hens on a neighbouring allotment went broody last month so I put 6 of our eggs under her. The result was 5 chicks though 2 have subsequently died. Meanwhile, our first attempt of the year to incubate eggs was a disaster. We put 10 call duck eggs into the incubator and not a single one hatched.
