    Thanks, Kath. Seems like you and I are the only regulars now. How's the little BLACK ONE? 

    Mine 6 hatchlings turned out to be 5 hens and 1 cockerel as predicted. The cockerel became aggressive....so he went...

    Of the 4 my daughter hatched, they were all cockerels. 1 was taken by a buzzard, two started fighting each other (so we go rid of them) and the remaining one is a fine looking young man called Teddy.

    Of the last two I hatched (the ones I tried to bake during a power cut, one of which I dropped and nail varnished the big crack), they are, indeed 2 cockerels. One is a pure bred Gold Brahma (wanted as I have three unrelated pullets) and the other is about 9/10ths Gold Partridge Brahma (James and Aggro). Currently they all get on well, so I'm sticking with the 5 very old birds (4 hens and Gordon), 5 new pullets  (3 Gold Partridge Brahma , 1 Naked Neck and one 'mongrel') , Teddy, James and Aggro.

    Yep, Kath.....I'll have a Brahma explosion next year, all being well.(Gold na Blue Partridge)...always been very fond of them. The pullets are 25 weeks old now and are showing no signs of coming into lay.....waiting for the spring, probably.

    My old girls stopped producing their few eggs at the beginning of October, so it will be a real novelty to have our own again. I doubt that the old girls (aged 8 or so) will come back into lay. Gordon is a real old man now....he and the old girls go back into the coop for the night at about 2:30.

    Well, here's hoping that the weather is kind,
