As I've got more time at home now that I no longer work at the Garden Centre, we have decided to finally start something we have been talking about for a while.
We have got a couple of incubators, bought some fertilized (hopefully!!) eggs and are now on day 4 out of the 21 days till they hatch. We can't wait! The garage has been partioned to make a special "chicken" area, and we are buying some new coups for them. We want to eventually breed rarer chickens ourselves and sell them as either point of lay or as fertilized eggs.
At the moment we have Pekin Bantums and Marams in the incubator. I love the really dark brown Maram eggs and look forward to rearing some hens. Lets hope they are not all boys!
