    down the road from me theres a woman thats opened up a new centre were she sells point of lay chickens ,quail,ducks ect and all the stuff they need,but not hatching eggs,allthough she does sell eating eggs at £1.50 for 6,all her chickens are pure breed,i asked her if her girls ran with a roo,she said yes but could not say if they were fertile or not,well i bought 6
    i picked 6 out of the bowl,3 blue,2 brown and 1 white,well to cut a long story short,as of the morning i have 5 fluffy chicks and number 6 is on its way out,as you can imagine im over the moon,because up untill now the only place i could get eggs from was ebay,and out of 24 i got 4 chicks and 1 out of my second set of 12
    i know were im going for eggs from now on,,,and it wont be ebay
