Well, if you read the news – sad Day – in the blog post below, you will know about the sad loss of Ellie. What you may not be aware of is the happy news that last month we hatched some ex-battery hen eggs that had been running with “Goliath” our Maran x Brahma cockerel that we rehomed.

Well the chicks are now nearly fully feathered and I have greta pleasure in sharing the pictures of these cross bred birds – Marra-Batts we are going to call them! It is unlikely that Elli was the mother of them, but some where, deep inside i think she would approve, and i hope i am wrong, that Ellie completed the cycle, that she managed to bring a little bundle of joy into the world before she passed away.
