    Quote: The house is charming. If that is American dollars it is a steal.
    If it is British pounds... I have no idea.
    I like the lay out, I think it is good that you are young!
    How much property? is it zoned for the type of farming you wish to do?

    Make sure that it is not lead paint that you need to scrape or that there is asbestos anywhere that would need to be replaced... That will add to the cost of the place in refurbishing.

    I hope you still have one broody for those babies. I candled my hens 4 eggs and only one is cooking and can't find any chicks yet close by to hatch around the 19th I hate she may have only one chick I think my roo maybe past his prime at going on 6yrs. I want bantams too which makes it harder.

    That happened here last year. I gave each hen a few eggs and somehow it worked out that only one hatched for each. Under one hen one was empty and another just never hatched...its like it made it to the day and then quit. The other one had an empty egg and one egg that didn't hatch right. I think her butt broke it. But each happily toted around their baby and would actually hang out and sit on eachothers on chillier days.

    *Sigh* babies. Must get more babies hahaha

    I think I'm going to order two...I've been talking it over with my SO all day and he said as long as the coop will hold them I can pick up a few [​IMG]

    As you can see it takes a lot of twisting of my arm to change course haha Now I have to think of names! And set up a brooder!

    [​IMG] What breed are you wanting? My eggs will be Cochin bantams I love that breed and I think since I already have a few they will fit in well with my LF hens.
