I would love to know as well cos I want to hatch some eggs at nursery this year and thst looks perfect...

You can't go wrong at that price. The only problem that I can see, is that with only a seven egg capacity, you may end up hatching just one or two chicks and one or two are as much trouble as a dozen.
samuria

thanks bodger... in my case the nephew has a very small back yard, and only wants about 4 bantams.
he would love to hatch some and is very keen
Pilsbury

Thanks,  what would be my chances of being able to move it once it's 3 or 4 days off hatching?
I would be planning on incubating at home until then and then moving them to the nurseryvfof the last few days, it's less than a mile and can be done carefully by car in about 4 minuets...

As long as you don't drive as though you've got your foot in a bucket of shit, you should be OK.

I might order a couple then and see if I can get a dozen hatching eggs in time for Easter,  I can put on both at home and hope to candle and get enough to fill at least one to take to work,  the kids would love it...
bodger

I can post you some Tony.

I know mate,  you offered ladt year when I had the idea bit I never got round to it.
Are yours sex linked? I can't remember.
Only reason I ask is I have someone who will take girls and someone who will take what ever but depending on how many hatch out there might be a dozen to be sorted.
bodger

No, not this year. That was when I was doing the Welsummer cross Light Sussex.
