Our chicks are now 4 weeks old and have moved to a pen outside.
Jasmine has taken charge of the chicks and she makes sure they are fed and have fresh water every morning, after her own breakfast. She doesn’t even need to be asked and she also makes sure they are locked up each night. She is such a mother hen that we refer to the chicks as her babies. They certainly follow her round like she is their mother.
We are really not sure as to what they are yet but we hope they are hens and not all roosters! The one in the front (picture above) is a Plymouth rock crossed with light Sussex. I can’t wait to see how that combination turns out.
