Your Chickens - - Contents - Si­mon McEwan Edi­tor

Spring hasn’t quite sprung, but it is cer­tainly draw­ing closer, and our thoughts are turn­ing to­wards re­newal and new life. What bet­ter time to plan hatch­ing some chicks ready for Easter? In this is­sue of Your Chick­ens we de­vote a full NINE pages to the whole sub­ject of hatch­ing, start­ing on page 6, with plenty of ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion. We are even giv­ing away a £295 Incubation Starter Kit from spe­cial­ists Brin­sea. Julie Moore says the se­cret of happy hatch­ing is to think like a Mother Hen; she is the ex­pert, and we can learn a lot by watch­ing her rear and care for her ba­bies. In a sep­a­rate fea­ture, Sarah McKen­zie sounds a note of cau­tion. One key con­sid­er­a­tion is what to do with those sur­plus males!


In the last is­sue, we car­ried a spe­cial re­port from The Na­tional Poul­try Show. This month it is the turn of the other big na­tional poul­try event, The Fed­er­a­tion Cham­pi­onship Show. See pages 30-32 to en­joy all the beau­ti­ful birds!
