" I'm the King of the Castle"
This tiny little black and white chick was taken by a neighbours cat a few weeks later. We were absolutely devastated.
hatchlings raised by my two broody bantams were roosters. They were later adopted into homes of generous "Freecyclers", where they could roam free and crow to their hearts delight. So my two broody bantam mums are now left with one hatchling each..........a huge Black Rock and a tiny Belgian D'Anver.
"All Grown Up"
Over the last week or so my Black Rock pullet has been giving me an egg every day for lunch in spite of the cold snaps up here on the Toowoomba Range. I did a little research and it seems that I can look forward to nearly 280 eggs per year from her.
Just yesterday my delightful tiny D'Anver laid her first egg. There were squeals of delight as everyone marvelled at it's remarkable size. Can an egg really be that small.
