We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

Our old incubator broke down last week, resulting in the loss of 18 quail eggs that were 4 days into their incubation period. We have now bought two larger incubators which also turn the eggs. They arrived yesterday. We are going to put in to one of them tonight 18 of our hen eggs. It will mean lots of cross breeds will hatch but as long as the hens lay eggs, we won't be worried. We may have a go at breeding some rare breeds separately.
