    Thanks for all your welcomes, great to know there's lots of lovely people to call upon for help! Think I may just paint it with some emulsion. Regarding the window / ventilation situation we haven't put it in yet, it's still a working project!

    Thanks for your welcome
    When speaking to a local poultry supplier he suggested getting mixed breeds vs rescues as first timers but have been thinking more into it and likely will see if can get some rescues/ex bat hens instead

    If you ask me, if you are just diving in the best breeds for you are Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks. They are hardy, easy going and reliable layers. Their cockerels easier to caponize and they make good capons.

    But them as chicks this way you will learn a lot about them and they will learn about you and life will be much easier for both you and the chicks. But again that's why I would do.
