The chicks have made it to 2 weeks just cleaned them out for the last time the next they will (weather depending) be moved into their new house in the workshops. They are growing so fast I have switched the brooder off but will prob have to switch it back on in the workshops unless we have a heat wave!

In the end we had 6 chicks and they are doing well now living in the bathroom in the bath I was going to move them into the workshops this week but changed my mind due to the weather so might give them a couple of weeks then move them over!
The one with the green tag is a bit of an experiment I thick it might be a hen so will have to wait and see! We had a visitor yesterday Garry's (camera club) daughter and granddaughter came round to have a look at them!
This morning the people turned up to fit my new windows hopefully they should be done in 3 days much to the hounds discussed!

Well it all started to kick off today lunch time we had a new arrival I think it's a Legbar. The Dob's are very interested in all the commotion that's going down in the incubator!!
Then this evening another Legbar had arrived closely followed by a Blue Laced Wyandott and something else was hatching out when I came to bed all a day early but hopefully all will be ok!
