Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone but....
« on: December 21, 2009, 19:07 »
Put my croad langshan (l/f) eggs in the incie :blush: had to do it quick, cos OH was going to confiscate it..threatened to put it in the loft :mad:outrageous!  Well, if my dearest plumb wants to lay her eggs for me, what else could I do?  Desperate to know if Terrence is a good boy, (think he is probably too young, despite being a giant!) :happy:

OH says he wouldn't mind if I sold the babies, but I do tend to fall in love with them...how else could I have grown from 4 choox to 104(min) I need another count up, but I have got 49 silkies, so MUST be over 100 now :tongue2: ;)

Anyway,...eggs put in now will be the right  age for sale at easter!!! how else can people buy their choox at easter if there isnt anybody (daft) like me willing to have a dining room full of chicks over Christmas ???

I dont only hatch my own. I do hatches for other people by request too, and conversely, I rent out my incubators (with eggs if required) for people (especially schools) to hatch as an experience..either keeping the chicks, or giving them back to me. I always set some spare eggs on the same day as the the schools, so if their eggs are infertile or something happens, we can exchange for "good" ones to avoid upsetting the children. I so love hatching...it is such a little miracle, that never ceases to amaze me  :D

Hi

I would be interested to know what you charge for renting out or hatching for other people and so on - if you don't mind giving your secrets away :)

Just gone loopy and bought myself an R-Com 20 Pro USB - would be nice to recoup a little money on it.
