    hey all, ok so im always posting about questions with keeping, incubating etc etc. but i have found the run i want/coop and the incubator and brooder and the breed. but i wondered what would be a good budget? i thought that if i limited myself to £300 itwould be a resonable amount to get started!? any opinions?

    I think that's ok. Start small and try to find bargains. I know here in the states, pre-built coops are very expensive! So I made my husband build me one [​IMG] Saved us a lot of money! We repurposed a lot of wood too. The coop/run and the incubator will be the most expensive. Got to figure in the feed, waterers and other supplies too.
