A Big Hello from South Somerset, England, United Kingdom :)

    Hello,
    I thought It was about time I introduced myself and let everyone know what we are breeding and keeping,

    I am Rob Dodge, and I live with my Partner Sarah and our children, Matthew, Johanna and Ebony, we have other pets which are..
    Scrappy who is a 20 month old Patterdale Terrier, Ziggy our 7 year old Green Iguana, Ice our 11 month old Albino Ringneck Parrot.

    Our chicken friends are..
    Mocha and Sparkle - 2 Hybrid Layers,
    Millie - Golden Partridge Wyandotte Hen,
    Frizzle - Charcoal Frizzle Pekin Bantam,
    Violet - Lavender Straight Feather Pekin Bantam,
    Barry - White Pekin Bantam Roo,
    GaGa - Mille Fleur x White Pekin Bantam Roo (He was bought as a Hen - hence the name ! lol )
    Daisy - White Mille Fleur Roo - which again was sold to us as a Hen but he isn't he has also suffered from a sort of stroke so is living in the bath at the moment but I think we may have to allow him to go to chicken heaven as he is struggling more every day [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Buffy - Buff Pekin Bantam Hen (Exhibition / Show Quality Hen)

    Tina - Gold Laced Polish Bantam Hen
    Turner Gold Laced Polish Bantam Roo (This is a breeding Pair)

    Bluto - Blue Cochin Roo
    Blueberry Blue Cochin Hen
    Bluebottle Blue Cochin Hen (These are a Show Quality Breeding Trio)

    Tall Boy - Golden Partridge Bantam Roo
    Sarah - Golden Partridge Bantam Hen
    Gemima Golden Partridge Bantam Hen (Ex Show Quality Breeding Trio - Hens are slowing down now as they are just over 2 years - still the occasional egg though !
    Gus - Golden Partridge Roo who is waiting for me to buy 2 hens for him ! [​IMG]
    Un named Chicks..

    2 x 4 week Old Chocolate Split Pekin Bantams 1x Roo & 1 Hen - Will be a breeding pair later in the year,
    4 x 2 1/2 week Old Pure Chocolate Pekin Bantams - unsexed at present,
    1 x 1 Week old Pure Chocolate Pekin Bantam
    1 x 1 Week Old Lavender Pekin Bantam - our first from our new incubator called " Pingu "
    5 x 2 Day old Lavender Pekin Bantams
    2 x 1 Day old Buff Columbian Pekin Bantam
    1 x 1 Day Old White Pekin Bantam.

    In the Incubator - 2 Pekin Bantam eggs due in the next 48 hours, 1 Black Silkie due to hatch in next 72 hours plus a selection of Pekin Hatching eggs from our 3 and 2 eggs from the Polish Pair and 3 from the Golden Partridge Wyandotte.

    That is my lot - Phew !
    I am having to buy an additional incubator tomorrow (Rcom - 20) as I have another 30+ Eggs waiting to be incubated.

    I am also off to purchase some " Showgirl " Hatching Eggs and Chicks next weekend which I should have available to sell on later in the year, feel free to contact me in early June for more information.

    Have a fantastic Sunday everyone,

    Kind Regards
    Dr Rob.

    P.s I could do with some advice on how to go about showing my Blue Cochins if any one could give me some pointers that would be fantastic !
