Giantrunt, Ok, I'll contact you for some more eggs in a couple weeks when the incubator is free. The chicks are growing nicely apart from the one with leg issues. The black feathers are starting to show.
Timing is not ideal. The wife booked us for time away for Christmas in Sydney and then to Hong Kong. 3 weeks all up. I think this is too long to leave 4 week old chicks by themselves. I will have to stop hatching chicks until the new year ...... unless a broody pops up in between.
Makes sense to me Chooky....as along time away....plus very hot by then.... Cool/Cold in HK... that time of the Year....fyi...:-) :-)....hard to beleive it neally X'mas again.... as u get older, the years go faster.....;-((

Just put Light Sussex on Gumtree, three week old $13 each... big healthy chickens & don't need heat/lamp... minium order 5.... ::
Are you hatching with pullet eggs? Most breeders advise against doing that for various reasons. I have done it many times without any issues but then I am not a serious breeder and I don't sell any of my birds.
Chooky it's just a game...., she's gone clucky....so I had the eggs...as too small to eat!.... she wants too so I let her..... like I said will keep you informed, as she's very young but but very serious!!... the quality of my little hen & roosters is unreal.... very pretty....:-) :-)
My indian game rooster's neck and posture seem to be stuck mid crow. His neck is out stretched and hanging low. He is eating fine. He runs after food. He can't get up on the perch, so he is sleeping on the ground at the moment.
