Chicken Watch 2014

We have been following the events as our eggs hatched and the chicks grew from fluffy bundles to lightly feathered creatures.  We set up a Live Webcam to watch however, the chicks have now moved on to their new homes so the video is no longer live.  

We hope you enjoyed being part of our project with the 'Happy Chick Company'.
