Bev update.

Up to about a week ago Bev continued to sit on the eggs

Early morning would often see her have a quick walk round the paddock and have a dust bath.

She has her favourite spot in the sunshine.

She would come to the kitchen patio and enjoy a spot of weeding.

The mint had gone wild so she helped with a bit of pruning.

As the 21 days of incubation dawned she stayed in the henhouse, on her eggs.

On Thursday evening we noticed one chick - Friday morning a few more.
Bev is now mum to 6 chicks - all doing fine.

I am keeping an eye on matters - watch this space!


  1. How lovely, they're so cute. Bev must be a very proud mum.

  2. Such beautiful chicks - I hope they continue to thrive. Bev is a good mother :-)
