  1. Hi if of interested I have barred chickens with a rose comb that the breeder called Marsbars. They lay blue eggs and are large they lay over 200 a year. I am in Northern Ireland. Here is link to breeders http://www.johnstonspoultry.com/skyline.html You will notice they have a diamond skyline as well which lays blue eggs
  2. Our local hatchery, in Ireland, supplies sexed day old chicks - http://www.johnstonspoultry.com/options.html Not sure if they would know a counterpart close to you that could maybe help?
  3. I've been able to use the new baby arrival as an excuse which has helped! Baby Piper Evelyn was born on Wednesday 22nd at 4.44am weighing in at 7lb 12oz
  4. so been working on this project, well mostly my dad has, to create 3 x breeding pens for trios of birds or more if small bantams. The pens will eventually be divided into three with covered runs in same fashion and we will of course put doors etc and a nesting box in each and roosting bars. Any advice on finishing touches would be appreciated. Particularly on ventilation as i was thing of just using a holesaw to cut some holes out of the front...
  5. Ended up with 3 of the Barbu Bantams and 9 wyandottes so very happy with that.
  6. Exciting I have 3 barbu danvers and 6 silver laced wyandottes so far. Incubator very condensated so will take more photos later!
  7. 1st one out and 6 more have pipped! Thats a Barbu DAnver chick, two more have pipped and 4 silver laced wyandottes
  8. Cheeping not much rocking so could be a long wait....
  9. First one peeped a bantam at 20 days... very excited 😁
  10. Not replying because I can help but lovely birds. I think someone can maybe be an advocate but the cage with the wire bottom helps as the breeze keeps there egg hole cool. Not sure of the technicalities... I had a silkie once that went broody in January, there was snow on the ground!
  11. Awesome they are soooo cool! So I took the advice and made some eldefflower cordial as well as the champagne for the wife... it is amazing!
  12. Thanks Mullethunter for the candler recommendation, used it tonight. Hard to get a good photo. A few unknowns to a rookie like me but looks like I have quite a few fertile eggs including 4 Barbu DAnver eggs like this image Only day 7 so can't count my chickens and all that...
  13. Good feedback. I will need to be careful as wife is 35 weeks pregnant and little one who was looking longingly into the pot is 3....
