We never thought we would get attached … after all they’re only chickens! We were wrong! And this spring we decided to add a few to the flock … but really because we were curious about the outcome of a cross between our very large rooster … of uncertain pedigree … and our Rhode Island red girls. Well, we have our preliminary answer as three of the eggs that hatched resulted in black chicks. Not at all what we would have expected. If any of you reading this are chicken “experts” then do please take a guess at the breed of our rooster!
The gourmet breakfasts at our New Hope Bed and Breakfast are not yet legendary … although in our biased opinion they certainly have the credentials … not least due to the great tasting free-range, organic eggs. These chicks hatched just days ago should add to our supply in about 21 weeks! Come and try some … and relax at one of the best bed and breakfast inns in Bucks County !
