February 2015 – New Chicks

Exciting times, as today we are adding another 1,200 birds to the farm. This brings the total capacity to 4,000 layers.

The new flock is Lohmann Brown which is a change from the Hyline breed for the previous two flocks. This will also be a flock where we intend to test a new type of feeder that needs to be filled once a day rather than the current 3 times a day for the wooden feeders.
