Chicken shuffle

This weekend we finally got around to re jigging the hens. The 3 good Welsumm
er hens, the Ixworth and the Australorp have been moved to the yard. The Welsummers will soon be joined by a Gold Duckwing Welsummer cockerel and will be used for breeding.

Ixworth and Australorp joined the 2 Speckled Sussex hens and at some stage will probably be mated with the Indian Game cockerel.

The two Light Sussex hens and the Light Brahama have been br
ought back home to join the layers and hopefully later in the season will become broody.
The other three Welsummer hens and the Welsummer cockerel are in the garage plucked and waiting to be drawn
, as soon as they have cooled a little.
