Re: 8 newcomers

No 8 arrived this morning, from a very cold egg! I didn't hold out any hope for it, but she pushed it back under her, with a positive result. Today they are outdoors, in a little hut which is ideal, she is spread like a large yellow pancake over them all.
All seem healthy and lively. (ATM).

8 newcomers

My Silkie Lottie yesterday hatched 8 little Lottie/Pierres, dad is my lemon cuckoo Pekin. I will be interesting to see how different they will be from each other, and if there are many differences.

Re: Ancona Chicks

Just this week lost my last Ancona girl - nearly 5.
Loved her to bits, just be prepared for the noise, though if you have not had Anconas before, great layers, and forever telling everyone off. She was still laying when she died.

Re: Red stop

Hello hipchick, Yes, Redstop does work thankfully, I've just used it as the final solution as my girls were really suffering, one very large coop, and a much smaller one not infected, until the little b.....s decided that they had had enough of constant bombardment and decamped to the smaller coop. ...
