Hi Everyone. We bought a new Scots Grey cockeral this winter. If anyone would like fertilized eggs I'll pop them in the post for 12 per 6.
Thanks OEH

Hi, sorry should've said. They're large fowl.

We've got 18 in the incubator. Why does 3 weeks seem so long...

cool-I will definitely be up for a couple of growers this year  :) are yours autosexing? I am waiting for some to come out of the incy-your hens crossed with one of Brittannic's cockerels.

Whats autosexing? ???  I found them quite easy to sex once their feathers were in. The girls are quite a lot darker than the boys. I'll let you know what I get out of this batch. There are 18 in the incubator due to hatch next week and I put 6 under a broody hen last night  :fc: .

the boys are a bit lighter and have a gold spot on their heads at hatching, the girls are darker and plain, black heads.
