This years eldest batch.
« on: June 26, 2013, 02:55:47 pm »
Here are my oldest batch, there's eleven of them in total. They're starting to look like proper chickens now, I have four Light Sussex cocks and just the one pullet, with two Welsummer cocks and four pullets. I don't know if you remember, but the latter came from the eggs that I bought on our last visit to Herefordshire.



Thankfully, my next batch of nine contains quite a few LS pullets.

I've had them for a few years now and they are a blend that I've created from some eggs that I got from friends locally and from some eggs that came from Cambridgeshire, again via a friend. The latter have been kept by the family for 20 to thirty years.
I'll try and root some pictures out of the parent stock. I'm really proud of both how they look and how they perform. They're cracking layers.
