Re: Coop for 10 hens - recommendations

I got mine from Sunny Fields Poultry Housing in Honiton, Devon. They are genuinely hand-built by Colin (he's a carpenter with his own flock of hens), and are quality, strong houses.

Re: Does hatching date affect the sex of chicks?

Thanks for that. I might be getting the incubator out soon then. I've got a 6 year old hybrid light sussex who has been fantastic at laying so would like to get some of her chicks before she gets too old, or caught by Mr Fox.

Does hatching date affect the sex of chicks?

Hello everyone, I'm new to here but have kept hens for a few years now. I hatched my first-ever half dozen eggs last year, just after lockdown started in the spring and was totally eggstatic when all 6 hatched.
