Lewis is broody...

I was going to wait until after exams but me is broody, wants chicks and kind of have 4 hatches on the go...

The 2 broody sisters are in a couple of ma broody coops in Tub Trugs!

Annie on the left is on 3 developing eggs which are due to hatch next weekend
Dorothy (Red on right) is on 5 developers due the week after!

Got 6 Call duck eggs in my new Brinsea Mini incy I bought from Cotswold Chickens which are due to hatch in 3 weeks time.

Also have 12 eggs ready to go in my Octagon 10 incy in Aber - Frizzles, Booted Bantams and German Langshans!

May try and hatch some Organic quail eggs just to see if they're fertile, friend is after some more so be a bonus if they do hatch!

Broody: Hatch 8 with Dorothy

Its hatching time again! :)
Dorothy, the Red Pekin I bought at the National has gone broody so I got 6 hatching eggs for her from Tasha.
A Speckled Sussex x Araucana and 5 Pekins... 2 Lavender (from Quigleys girls!), 2 Mille Fleur and a Cuckoo.

Popped a TubTrug full of bedding and the 6 eggs into a broody coop and she jumped straight back on them!
Day 0 ... due to hatch the weekend of 4th May!
