Post Title. 05/27/2011
Well, over the weekend six eggs that our broody has been sitting on have hatched:) All five of us were watching one egg for ages, from piping to actually coming out of the shell, it was worth the wait to see something so magical.
Three speckled Sussex and Three Wyndottes. Our first home breed chicks. All doing very well.
Our pure Araucana chicks from our incubator are due next Tuesday. Keeping my fingers crossed that they all hatch and are in good shape.

Lots happening today 05/10/2011
Well today we paid a visit to Scats in Heathfield and Purchase our Binsea advanced incubator. It is only the seven egg version but fully automatic. We intend to use it just for the pure breeds and then get a cheaper one if we decide to start producing hybrids.
Mertile has now laid six eggs and these have gone into the newly setup incubator along with one from a mystery hen.
