Our Maran eggs came 21 days ago and so are due to hatch today. They are presently in Little Louis Fox's class room so that he, and the rest of his classmates, get to experience the excitement of our newest members of our feathered menageries birth.
The quail chicks laid their first egg yesterday. They have matured really quickly and are big enough now to be living outside. They sleep in an old rabbit hutch while I renovate a chicken house and run for their permanent home.
They get moved to an outside run every day where the rest of the chickens and the dogs seem to find them fascinating.
