You got a problem with the incy Rough ???
Didn't quite catch that ??? :lol:

Patience is a virtue so I'm told, good things come to those who wait. I'm sure there are more :lol:


I'd be exactly the same :lol:

Maybe it someone's way of saying you should have gone for a smaller one ???

aww Ruff! Can you change suppliers? or incy perhaps?
Anyway what hatching eggies were you getting? I know you posted it somewhere.
I hope to have enough to pop in the incky this weekend, fingers crossed!

I am going to go for Scotts Grey.  Several Reasons.
One they are on the endangered list http://www.rbst.org.uk/watch-list/poultry
I have read that you can Auto sex at a day old!!!



BreedHen    Cock
Scots Grey
4
1
Cream Legbar 
2
Silver Grey Dorking
2
Welsummer
2
Total
10
1

But I may scratch the Welsummer for a Buff/Black Orpy cross as the lady up the road that is looking after my one remaining chuck has some Orpys (buff) with a Black Cockerel.  Who knows.  Scratched the Silver sussex.

I am trying to get the Scots Grey eggs I am going to try to get eggs from at least two (but pref 3 suppliers).  I am going to give away unwanted cocks and sell for not allot the birds. Aim is to have a cock with two pairs of unrelated females and the pairs unrelated to the cock. Then a bit of breeding.   :D
That is the dream. 

In the mean time I am thinking of getting a first batch of Cream Legbars and Dorkings.  Breed and give away cocks sell the birds but keep two of each.

Just about to fill up the incy...  Sorry to rub it in Rough  :tongue2:

Sorry you've got problems sourcing yours.  I'm seriously tempted to get another larger one, but I know I'd never stop and be over run with chickens :D

It has arrived.

Now I have to
1. Purchase incubator sanitiser.
2. Tell the OH that the Incy has to be in the house for 21days not in the garage as the temp fluctuates to much. (OMG THAT IS GONNA BE A ARGUMENT)
3.  Decide what eggs to go for initially. 6 Scotts Grey and 6 Cream Legbar or the Dorking?
4.  Purchase the eggs.

oooooh eggcited.
