The things that go on in suburbia on a weekend!

Our friends, Carol and Graham, have our Hobbes' brother and are keen to breed some pure Light Sussex chickens. A deal was struck whereby we would give them two of our Light Sussex hens, as mates for Hobbes' brother, and we would get two Black Rocks in return.

Black Rocks

As agreed, Carol and Graham delivered the two Black Rocks on Saturday. Carol dropped by after work tonight to pick up the two Light Sussex - so Miss Green and Miss Purple have gone to a new home in the hills.

The two Black Rocks are laying away - I hope the two Misses don't let us down!! The Black Rocks have been in the wee ark until tonight when they will be added to the main flock. Hopefully, they will integrate without a problem.

Hi guy's;

LOVE those chickens! I have never raised Black Rock's. How are they for frying? They look very healthy! Glad to see and read the new posts!!!

ooo, Black Rocks! The only chickens I've ever had - I had half a dozen and they laid and laid and laid - until the badger got them when they were 6 years old. Towards the end they only laid in the summer months but still good going. Lovely eggs, too.
