My name is Dermot Parker and I live with my two brothers, John and Ryan, on a sheep farm with chickens and bees in Ballymacward, Co Galway. At quarter to seven in the morning, I get up and go down to the farm, which is about 300m from my house. I feed the sheep at this time of year and there are plenty of newborn lambs, so we are very busy.

When I get back home after the morning feed, myself and my two brothers also go and feed our chickens. We have seven hens and a rooster. We have no young chicks yet, but we are expecting one or two of the older hens to start sitting on eggs and hopefully we will have chicks later in the year.
