eggstream2014_0On Thursday 05th of June at 20:43 the first chick to hatch at Barr's Hill made its way out of the shell. During the next few hours more chicks began hatching after hearing their sibling's cheeping.

This first chick to hatch was a Buff Orpington a lovely dark coloured chick with a light spot on its head. Over the next few days we expect more of the 18 eggs to hatch following on from their brothers and sisters.
