Thanks Icemaiden for the advice =re the Green Frog coop. I'm fairly certain I'm going to go for the Solway.

But more exciting news, I've just put a deposit down on three pekins!!!

And so it begins! :D
Take plenty of time to introduce them in a separate run (after, or better just before POL when they will need the nest boxes.) It will bring out the mean side of your hybrids who have claimed your garden as their territory but it does diminish to a normal pecking order after a month or so together.

Have you actually got any hybrids? If only getting 3 pekins from the same place, there will be no need to separate them, just put them into their run and coop straight away.
