Frey's Hatchery. We have basically given up on the Chantecler chickens. If they can't brood and hatch their own eggs, then they aren't of any use on our farm. These new chickens are Harco Black S-x-Link . A rather questionable name, but they sound like just the chickens for us. They are supposed to be good layers and brooders and good eating in the end.
They are a little bigger than the Chantecler were when we got them last summer. These chicks are 2 weeks old. We got 12 hens and a rooster. We'll keep them in the summer kitchen for a while and let them get bigger and get over all their travel.
Ella's very excited to have new chickies out there.
