Hatched today and vaccinated by my sister, there are Light Sussex large fowl also, rhode x light sussex, barnvelder x light sussex and a few others, in bantams, there are Lemon Mille fleur barbu d`uccle, red pekins, mottled pekins, and Polands in all colours.
Please ring if you are interested in any of these chicks, a care sheet can be supplied if you would like to rear these yourself and see the full life cycle of the birds.
The large fowl birds from this selection will be laying in the spring.
Copper Black Maran eggs are being set in the incubator today to give hybrid copper black chicks in 3 weeks time.
Please ring if you would like to order any of these birds, sexed at day old so no cockerels if you just want hens thats fine.

We are all enjoying the sunshine today after all the rain of the last evenings has made such a mess around the place.  I am setting eggs today for chicks in 3 weeks time and taking orders for them, Large fowl and bantams, these are the surplus eggs that haven`t sold on our www.fertilehatchingeggs.com web site.
Please take a look if you have an incubator or broody, the cockerels are still active and we have quite a good hatch rate even though it is later in the season.

We are offering an Incubator Hire Package for anyone who wants to try hatching but not have the expense of buying the Incubator just to use for one lot of chicks.
Please ring me on 07709933064 for details.

Now the winter nights are here and I am inside more in the evenings I will be writing the blog more often to keep people up to date with the goings on at Fosters Poultry.
We are now stocking a very good range of Incubators, including the manual and automatic versions of Corti, 25 and 50 egg machines. These are   the best small incubator I have used and so we have become a stockist.  We also have a starter kit which is listed on the web shop.
Lots of hatching eggs are here for beginners to have to start off this really interesting hobby and if you are local we will have back any cockerels that are not needed from your hatchlings.
We are looking for a Barnvelder Cockerel since our lovely boy  died last week so if anyone has one to rehome we would be grateful for him.

In the spring we would like to take our hatching service into Primary Schools, Nursery schools and into any other establishment which would like to see chicks hatch. We will supply the incubator and eggs for the last few days before the chicks hatch and take the package including chicks away when they are a few days old, once the chicks are 3 days old.   If anyone is interested in the Gloucestershire area please get in touch by ringing the Mobile 07709933064.
