true.
all the first five incubators are sold now. anyone wanting one just contact me and i can import.

I am about to become a genuine farmer in the next few weeks.

besides the 24 hives of bees, I am about to embark on a small scale chicken breeding program using Purebred Rhode Island Reds and Australorps as foundation stock.

the stock is from Oz via thailand and stunningly expensive.

I'll be in the market for some after I get fences etc set up on my land. Those Australorps are not only good layers but a good size meat bird. Almost the same as the Black Orpingtons but lousy mothers, which is why I always kept a few Chinese Silkys for hatching and raising chickens.

they also produce an f1 with excellent performance when mated with local chickens.
None of the good layers make good mothers.

I've got a dozen or so silkies. Had some experimentation cross breeding with khmer chickens, jungle fowl and most recently malay bantams. The results have been interesting.

For my next mission I'm trying to cross the mouen malay with a mouen prey (cock and hen respectively).
