Breeding Pens

Had a busy day today !!

Built yet another covered pen onto a spare chicken house I have and knocked up a some quick nest pans out of some used sheep feed buckets.

Caught up all the layers I have mixed in with the hybrid meat birds pen and the big blue Indian Game cockerel which runs with them and settled them into there new home.

This leaves only the 2 slow growth hybrid meat cockerels, there 4 hens and the 3 medium growth Sasso hens so in a few weeks the eggs from this pen will be making my first batch in the Incy.

I also have my Cukoo Marans in this pen but can easily tell there eggs apart, although I might try a few of this cross to see how they turn out

Anyone else sorting out breeding pens?
