A couple of hours ago our neighbour rushed over to tell us the latest news from the maternity unit! Mabel has successfully hatched a chick!
There had been a couple of disaters – but she and the chick are doing well!
Bev however has not been successful and so we brought her home! The trouble is the rest of the hens have forgotten who she is, so we had a touch of bullying and 4 onto 1 is not fair so she is spending the night in the goose shed now my potting shed. She is very thin, so I am feeding her up with plenty of food and water!
