chips

A bock bock, if you're Ivy and not quite two, is a chicken.

A chip is a day old cornish cross broiler chicken, one of 150 that arrived by courier today.

Our eighty went straight into the cosy brooder room, and seventy temporarily hung out in a washing basket and big black tub until nearby friends came to collect them. 

Check out Adam's pretty ingenius little waterers. Great use for a disposable cup.

Not that it gets particularly cold down here, but this will be our last batch till spring, because these guys will be our first properly pastured chickens and out on grass from the time they're two weeks old. 

Pastured poultry pen currently TOP of the to do list.

On my to do list right now: to go make a couple of batches of bikkies! Better get cracking. 

What are you doing?
