On Sunday we finally got round to moving the young chickens that we hatched out earlier in the year into their bigger pen. I got the electric netting back out, moved the coop with the tractor and gave them a nice new area to peck and scratch in.
Before moving them I clipped their wings in an effort to try to keep them in their new pen, I doubt it will work but I live in hope!

Out of the six that hatched I think we've only got two hens and one maybe (I'm not quite sure about the light coloured one!). But that means a few meals in a few weeks time.
How has everyone else got on with hacthing and breeding chickens this year?
