Busy bees

Moving hives
The hives packed for the move 

Spring has been a bit crazy for our bees. First of all we had to move them from Bank Top Farm where they were just a bit too close to the human residents for comfort. The hives are now in Upper Padley in a nice quiet location well away from trouble.

A busy month at Charli's Chooks

Things have been hectic at Charli's Chooks during the past month. First of all we have 10 more white hens to keep the egg count up. 

Then we have been working on breeding up a few hens of our own. We have four Light Sussex hens who are around eight weeks old now, plus some very young Cream Legbars which we hope will grow into blue-egg layers.
