|the hens in their culvert nesting boxes in the brooder|
We're excited and will keep you informed as soon as we know. The Speckled Sussex is a heritage breed that is "recovering" from having been "threatened", according to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
The brooder now needs a few basic pieces of furniture. First, a creep feeder for the chicks!
A few hours later the very same day...
MAJOR UPDATE: We have baby chicks!!!
Maybe more later. She and the other hen are still on their nests!
