We have set a remote camera in the broody pen enabling us to watch them 24/7. It has given us a fascinating insight into the behaviour.of a mother hen and her chicks. We are trying to set up the camera as a live webcam on here but are having a few difficulties at present.
With the start of the breeding season and the promise of finer weather many hens have started to go broody, this has brought about a succession of questions from those new to poultry keeping, with this in mind I have added new pages to the Information section. I have also set up a new Facebook group Chickens: it may be a silly question but... a place to ask question and to share tips and information. So if you are on Facebook please do join in. We would love to see you there.
