New Chickens and sheep breeding season in full swing……

We have recently renewed some of our hens with some new young birds, laying white, dark brown and blue eggs……their youth, coupled with the change in season has meant we are experieincing a drop in production- apologies to anyone who cant find our eggs in the usual outlets, but hopefully the girls will be back in full production soon!
Our rams have just been turned out with our late lambing ewes, having had a couple of months off from our last tupping season of our early lambing flock. The ewes are all in good condition, so we are hoping for lots of lambs come January and April next year. Our early lambing ewes will be scanned early next month, so we will know then what we can expect. Scanning also means we can make sure that the ewes carrying more lambs get more feed.
