    Thanks Satay, that's lovely of you, and maybe we should do an egg swap later on. Actually the marans must be tough. Only my blue girl got killed, all the others were both my aras, and 3 layers. One layer has turned up, so the death count is 6. It makes you feel guilty for not keeping them safe.

    Yeah i have a few of them as well. This little one is great for banties. They are such tiny little things i hate putting them into the bigger cages when they are so little. They are still under lights at night for another week by then they may have grown up enough to be in a bigger cage.... Well looking at them now maybe not but it's good in theory.

    3 of my 16 week old Hampshire crosses and 1 gingerham has been squatting and trying out the nesting boxes for 4-5 days already!! . They are still on grower but have seen them eating the layers pellets. Even for mixed breeds this seems unusual, anyone else had mixed breed pullets and they start squatting before their 16 weeks? I am sort of hoping they will hold out till their 18 weeks.
