Day old/week old chicks
« on: April 13, 2007, 21:35 »
hello Folks,

We have had a modicome of success with hatching some egs in a homemade incubator.  We had 8 eggs and three hatched, sadly we lost a chick today which fell asleep in the water tray!  We wanted six hens, so we need to get some additional stock.  Does anyone out there know of a supplier that sells day old or week old chicks that is based in the Surrey area?

If not, is it feasible to buy point of lays to establish a coup and then introduce our home bred birds in 18 weeks or so.

The chicks we have are most probably a Black Rock and a Warren.  Will post some pictures on my gallery over the weekend - Aunt Sally you will love them.  The girls have named them Fluffy and Lucky. Lets hope they are not cockerels
Enjoying the traditional ways and values of life.

Similar situation here, had a couple we hatched and needed a few more.

Recently got a few week old chicks from www.perfectpoultry.co.uk. All doing fine 3 weeks on.

Maybe give them a try?
