Hello all, I have made an introduction thread in the new member area but thought it best to tell the details of my chicken journey here as I have been and am hatching rolling batches of eggs and have plenty of questions I'd appreciate some input on. I started out getting some Ross 308 broilers as day old chicks, it was good to start with them as the responsibility of looking after them has a relatively definate deadline (no pun intended), my girlfriend in particular wanted to sample the chicken life before we dove straight in. I also wanted to see if I could handle the foxes, we live in London and our garden is surrounded by families of foxes, who are very bold and used to much slimmer pickings than a chicken coop. The broilers where a success, we still have four that are getting to be a very good size but I have also started incubating. I got a janoel-12 from eBay for £30 delivered, I then got confused thinking I had just watched it, could no longer find it so bought the next cheapest I could find, £35 delivered. I realised my mistake and then felt pleased, the chicken maths was taking effect before I'd set my first egg.
