Hello everyone, I guess this is the best place to post this. Last weekend I bought a GQF 1200 series Incubator and 2 GQF 1200 series Hatchers, so along with my still air tabletop incubator I have plenty of capacity. I would like to build up my flock of Cochins, but I'm not sure I want to hatch an entire flock as my first attempt at incubating. It also seems as though there are not many fertilized eggs available right now. A third problem is that I'd like pure bloodlines from which to breed a quality line of Cochins. At some point I'd also like some OEGB and Silkies, but that's another project. Practical advice here. Buy last years hens, or hatch some eggs? A.e.
