well what a time I am having, our website for fertile hatching eggs is not working at the moment,.  It has been taken down by the hosting company who have problems on the servers.  Or so they tell me.  I have a very good friend who is helping me get this site working again so if you are interested in any of our hatching eggs, please be patient, it is being sorted.

In between while I am trying my best to get the site that you found this blog on to list all the hatching eggs that I have for sale either now or in the next month or so.

We are busy with the Incubator, testing all the eggs for fertility as the birds come back into lay from there Winter rest.  Chicks will be available for sale from these hatchings.

Thats all for now, but if anyone is reading this who develops websites please get in touch. I could do with some help.  Have a good week.

February 2014

During this month we will be incubating any spare hatching eggs that are not sold on our web site www.fertilehatchingeggs.com
I update the list as often as possible and also test hatch for the fertility to check that the eggs sent will be viable.  I look at the shell quality of each egg before wrapping to post and also weigh the egg.  Any egg which is oversize is not posted.  I do not post any egg I would not be happy to receive myself.

We now have 2 young men who are helping us 2 days a week and we are slowly updating all our premises. Please bear in mind when you visit that we have been in this business for over 15 years so some of the fencing and sheds are looking a bit tired,  We want to look after our birds first and foremost and the maintenance of the property gets done when we can.  

My husband and I are not in good health so we get done everything which is needed for the health and welfare of the birds. James and Richard are young and fit so can get on with things we find a struggle.
I am so glad we have them here now to help us.
Some better weather would be a help also, our field is like everywhere else holding water and the geese are loving their weather  made pond.
The Geese have just started laying lovely big white eggs.
We now have over 30 geese so the eggs should be fertile should anyone wish to buy some for hatching. We sell them for £1.00 each.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog please mention you have seen it when you visit. We only accept visitors to view the birds by appointment.

Fosters Poultry January 2016. Busy days ahead

Hello Everyone,
We are delighted to be Agents for the Black Rock Pullets from Scotland.  Orders taken for these need to be collected on the day they arrive so we do not stress them out by housing them and then catching them again a few days later.  This stress is not really needed for these beautiful birds.  Eddie Lovett is a lovely man who delivers the birds himself all the way from Bridge of Weir where he rears the birds and houses all the parent stock which originated from Peter Siddons of Muirfield Hatchery

We will be having  deliveries of our lovely Goldline Hybrid Point of Lay Pullets in January  and we are taking orders for these.  I hope you will be able to collect the birds on the day they arrive here which is less stressfull for them.  We don`t like housing them and then picking them up again after a day or so as this means them going through another move which always stresses the birds and us.

DAY OLD  Cobb and Hubbard Meat Birds.  Orders are being taken for these birds which come  from the hatchery   I have been let down on a few occasions with non collection of the meat birds and we do not have room to house them. Consequently these have to be paid in advance and orders of 50 or more.  If we have enough small orders to make up 50 then that is when the order is placed.

I have a facebook page called Fosters Poultry, and also one for fertilehatchingeggs.com  if you would go on these pages and LIKE us I would be grateful.  Thankyou.
I hope to hear from you in the New Year with new orders but if you already have poultry with any problems please ring I would be pleased to help.

5th July 2013 Update on Fosters Poultry

I have been informed that over the last month my other web site of fosterschickens.co.uk had been hacked and had malware files on it.
This has now been dealt with so I am sorry if you had a problem with the site, everything is now back to normal.

As for the normal life of Fosters Poultry, we have had a delivery from our rearing shed of White Leghorns, Rhode Rock and Light Sussex. These are 16 weeks old and all vaccinated, ready to go to new homes. A Care sheet can be supplied if needed.  These birds are £15.00 each.
Other birds here for sale is Goldlines, which are 16 weeks old and we are selling for £9 each.

The Copper Blacks which we have had for the last 2 weeks have proved very popular so we only have 10 left now.
Aylesbury Ducklings here now are 2 weeks old and unsexed we are selling these for £5.00 each.
Goslings all sexed girls are also here 3 weeks old and selling for £12.00 each.

Nick and I are as busy as ever so please ring before coming to view the birds.  I am not in the best of health at the moment having to take steroids on a daily basis so please be patient if I cannot see you on the day or time you would like.  Tel: 07709933064
Here`s to a lovely weekend, I hope everyone enjoys the sunshine, please think of the birds and realise that they do not like being caught in hot weather, so we would appreciate customers collecting the birds in the evenings as this is far less stressfull for them.  Thankyou for reading and if you do come to visit, please mention that you have read this blog. Then I will know if its worth writing regularly.
