An extended power cut on the day England was playing in a Euro football match meant that our three day old chicks were left without a heating lamp. If the chicks got too cold they could start to die.
The photograph shows how the gardening team dealt with the emergency - a cosy afternoon for the chicks in the farm vehicle with the heating on plus the added bonus of listening to the match live on the radio (England won!). All the chicks survived and we are pleased to report that they are thriving and will soon be allowed outside into the orchard.
