    Sadly not LK, the 5 pipped but 2 didn't make it out . I decided not to interfere as they were still pipping away the following but the next day they were dead. The heads were at the bottom and they hadn't been able to chip out. An extra day+ in the shell and they were just too big :( I very nearly...

    From reading your thread on another forum, I think your problem was definitely the length of time they were in the post. That amount of time in transit will minimise any chance of fertility and as lk also pointed out handling in the post would only add to the problem. I don't think the seller is to...

    I contacted them on the 7th day to ask them where to...

    For a couple of night 2 bantams have decided to change house, so I decided it was time to check over and spring clean their usual one.
    Fortunately I'd packed the ends of the roosts with d.e. because it had kept the red mites on the roost and quite visible. Not catastrophic, cleaned up, scrubbed,...

    Nice rescue, Maggie. These guys will for ever be trying to think up imaginative ways to catch us out. With emails being free to send, thet can fire of gazillions and only need one numpty in a million to fall for it and they have scored. It's a jungle out there!

    Thanks Luggacureen Poultry!. That's the plan!.

    I am just getting back into poultry after time out due to college, travel and work. I have got some light Sussex for next year which are turning out great, so might as well see how he goes and if all goes well I might breed some Welsummers next year...
