I had the helpers over today. We built a new permaculture bed using a layer of plain cardboard followed by a layer of manure mixed with hay, then a layer of seawed, then another layer of manure/hay mix for a total of 24' x 4'.
After many weeks of sitting on eggs our broody hen has finally hatched 3 little ones! The two lighter ones are Icelandic, from hatching eggs I drove to Truro to get, and the dark one is a Barred Rock from one of my own hens!
