    Hello and thank you for having us :)

    I dont really know what to say....lol

    My Name is Lucy, I am almost 30 weeks pregnant and My husband is Michael he isnt pregnant ha ha

    Michael and I have 3 Hens and 1 Rooster , Berleena, Izzy, Fruity and Dougal :)

    We live in the Highlands of Scotland somewhat 12 miles north of Inverness where it can be very cold!!

    We love chickens!!

    We started using the Brinsea Mini Eco about 2-3 years ago and have had some successful hatchings,which is very exciting,
    we actually incubated and hatched Fruity and Dougal :) and incubated another 4 eggs from our hens.
    We did indeed get 3 out of 4 hatched and they were beautiful, but we hatched 2 roosters and 1 hen so ended up with 3 roosters and 4 hens, so the roosters had to go!

    But we still have our big Boy Dougal. (even tho he is a big pansy)

    My Parents have recently become fond of the big Faverolle chickens and kindly sent us some eggs to try and Hatch.

    3 out of 5 were fertile and but we only hatched 2 out of 5, despite 3 seperate powercuts!!!

    Anyway, Im rabbiting on now, I have some questions, so i will begin with those in a new forum thing :)

    But we look forward to chatting to you chicken lovers:)
