Black Rock hens : great mums

Whilst our main flock of Black Rocks are here to lay the scrummiest free range eggs, ranging over herb rich pasture adding valuable nutrition to the grazing as well as producing the best compost activator every night, we do keep a few older hens who will go broody. They are the BEST mums – here are a few of this years babies : including the addition of guinea fowl keets to be future tick control around the farm, aren’t they beautiful ? Mums and babies get to free range around the park, amongst the fruit trees, perennials and herbs. #living larders #permaculture #grow your own #smallholding #crofting #black rock hens
