New chooks at Charcott

And here are our new babies.  Brought back yesterday afternoon and all looking slightly scared and bewildered at being suddenly surrounded by grass  and space – to say nothing of finding themselves  at the bottom of the pecking order.  But adjusting and settling in nicely and himself said there was even a tiny round egg tucked in amongst the usual big ones this morning.  So all bodes well, the older ladies are being tolerant, the cockerel has a new glint in his eye (!) and with a bit of luck we should soon be up to normal egg production levels with more than enough for guest and family consumption.
