Last night was a doddle. The 9 chicks put themselves to bed at 9:30pm in the annex and the big girls and Rooster stayed up a little later, (they are the grown ups after all.)
Felt a bit redundant until hubby pointed out that there was a broody hen in the woodshed!
'Let's put some eggs under her tomorrow and raise some more chicks,' HE said.
See, it's not just me! .........
