Spring Chicks


Our clucky bantam was put to good use with some Barnevelder eggs bought from the last poultry auction. These chicks are our transition chicks. They’ll get to forage in our garden here before we move them on to the new garden at Tillellan in – hopefully – a few weeks. Out of a half dozen we have five so far. Their ‘sudden’ appearance in the garden has given the boys a renewed interest in caring for the animals.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
