Quail

Quail

While cutting wood the other day I uncovered a nest containing 14 quail eggs. These birds are common round here and apparently make good eating so I transfered the eggs under a clucky hen in the hopes she will hatch them out.

Chooks are laying again!

Chooks are laying again!

We were beginning to question the commitment of our chooks (and the manhood of our rooster) as the winter egg famine failed to break.

I spent numerous evenings digging the ground to expose worms, collecting sea shells for grit and finally they are away.

Finding the eggs

Finding the eggs

A number of hens have gone clucky, it's that time of year again. Locating the outdoor nests is always a challenge as not only are they well hidden the hens are careful to come and go unnoticed.

Today's nest has 15 eggs slowly turning into 15 tasty chickens.

Fertilised Silkie Eggs

Details  Silkies are the sweetest, fluffiest chickens and make fantastic pets. They have a docile nature and if handled from a young age make excellent 'lap chickens'. They require all the same care as regular chickens, but because they have special fluffy feathers that look like fur, they need a dry place to keep out of the rain. Their feathers can become saturated with water quite quickly. Once their feathers get too wet they can get chilled and this could lead to health problems. So it is important they have shelter from wet weather.

We currently have fertilised eggs available for purchase. Pickup from Blockhill. The eggs are from Mottle Silkies. We will also have unsexed silkie babies ready to go to loving homes at the beginning of November 2021, once they are 8 weeks old.

If you would like to come meet our two Mottle Silkies and their babies, or if you would like to buy some fertilised eggs then please get in touch by filling out the form below, or email melisa@blockhill.co.nz
