    Ok so I seem to have a bad case of chicken fever, It's like I have chickens on the brain all the time!

    I have only had chicken for about 6-7 months and I keep thinking "What I could do with them"? (not stew or roast lol)
    So after 15 + hours looking over forums this weekend I have got information over load so the best way to learn is just jump in with both feet, I have decided to try and hatch some Chicks my self this year I was thinking about just buying some egg's in rather than get a roo just yet!
    Dose any one no of a good breeder in the UK for some good blue laying Araucanas so I can get my hands on some egg's I have looked on the UK Araucana club, but I'd like some input from you guys on this as I am like a little boy in a sweet shop taking the first thing and ending up with a EE,
    I have stared buying things already I have a in door rabbit cage, Chick Crum, and a heat lamp (I see people use normal lamps so will the heat lamp be to hot for them?) iv saved up some jam jars for water all I need is an incubator, is there any think else I'm missing?

    My plan for the Year is:

    Get/Make all the equipment needed to Hatch some egg's and raise some chicks

    Find and hatch some Araucanas (If I can)

    Try and cross an araucana with a leghorn then back with a leghorn (can this be done as iv not found much on the net about it there just seems to be cream leg bars)

    Win the lottery!!
