    woo one more day I cannot wait! :)
    Having a hard time getting the humidity up tho. Fingers crossed it goes up this time. Channels are full.

    Usually once I hatch them and keep them for a few weeks I give them to a friend who has a farm.
    BUT I have caught myself looking at small coops for my back yard.

    What are your amazing reasons for having a chicken coop?

    Good luck with the hatch. It's a special moment watching them hatch. I have a small coop in my garden it will hold up to 5 big bird it was £100. I love it. [​IMG]
    it would cost a fortune to build one.
    I love having chicken it makes my garden look nice lol. I would keep them and but a coop.

    so far 2 amuracaunas and 3 lemon orpingtons have hatched. I believe 2 more have pipped. Fingers crossed for more.
