[​IMG] They wont be pure Ko Shamo the cockerel is a very stunning Dutch Bantam. I'll try and get a pic of him.

    What temperature do I need to worry about while D is sat on eggs? I don't want to move her again as she was a bugger to move in the first place! It's 8 degrees/ 46.4 fahrenheit

    Think I've made myself confused with due date as I counted it again and came up with today as the due date not the 18th [​IMG]. D came off the eggs for her feed had a look in and no sign of anything yet. I'm so excited in going mad lol
