It has been an incredibly busy week here at Oldfarm.
The bees that arrived 2 weeks ago are settling in.
We’ve had our first chick – yes, just one – born here in the 10 years we’ve been living here. I’m not sure how many decades it has been since there has been a hatchling here, I must find out. I am like a ‘clucky’ grandma watching over them.
I’ve made a special ‘chick feed’ and thankfully both Mum and baby are thriving.
And then this past Friday, Perky had another litter…. again all doing well. It will be a few days before they will venture out. They were barely 24 hours old when I took this photo.
So as you can imagine it is all keeping us busy!
