Hi guys.
Anyone got any fertile eggs? Looking for good layers, something like Rhode Islands Reds or Sussex.
Thanks

Just one extra little tip. While Rhode Island Reds are excellent layers, they can be a little temperamental. I had them as my first chickens (bantam size), and they kicked seven bails out of my silkies, to the point where I had to get rid of them. Even when moved to a friends farm and mixed amongst 30+ large fowl, they still bullied a lot of the flock. Not all RIR's are this way, but there is a definite trend in the breed for them to be a little aggressive. And an aggressive chicken can be a problem.
