The Naked Neck chickens are our heritage meat birds, they are strong, sturdy and tasty – more here about them. They also lay eggs – yay. Well now it is time to see if Red Rooster has been doing his job.
I have put some Naked Neck and Ixworth eggs in the newly cleaned incubator and in three weeks we should, hopefully, all things being well, have some chicks
Yes, it is spring and non-stop chick production here! I have to say that I do rather like the Naked Necks – Red Rooster is a gorgeous cockerel.
N.B. They can’t stay living by my hugelkultur beds though – they spend all day moving the mulch off them and I know they will eat any tasty plants that grow there!
