Some of this seasons Light Sussex.
The next generation of Light Sussex.

I took a photo of these youngsters last night. They represent the next step in my utility Light Sussex breeding programme. They are 75% my own strain with 25% from the Fred Hamms line. As you can see, this blend is producing quite a bit of colour and of course, as always its going to be interesting to see how they turn out.

I struggled to wean them off chick crumbs and  onto growers pellets to such an extent, that I felt I had to go back to with them to crumbs again but by that time, they'd become half hearted at eating them as well. I tried them with quail pellets but they didn't fancy that either. I was so desperate I even resorted to giving them bread and ...

No room left in my freezers and it's a shame to waste them.
