    Hi There,

    I have purchased 10 Silver Laced Wyandotte eggs from a breeder who professional shows there birds, he has over 100 chickens on his farm. they have won many awards.

    The eggs arrived this morning via royal mail 24 signed for, I have opened the polystyrene egg box and set the eggs for 24 hours.
    I have also setup my incubator ready for them to be put in tomorrow! I purchased a RCOM 20 PRO USB. I will attach loads of photos for you guys to enjoy :)


    If you have any advice please just let me know, I will also be ordering a chicken coop in the next couple of weeks (so exciting!!)
    if there are any that you recommend that would be great :)


    Many Thanks In Advance!!

    Regards

    Andrew

    Thanks for the kind words :). I can't wait to get them in the incubator, is there a coop you recommend on buying? I personally like the Cocoon 2200, I would add few extensions first. What do you guys think??

    I'm a little confused about coop's, I love the look of the Cocoon 2200 is this suitable? I would but the extension run :)
