I've got a dozen currently in the incubator due in the next few days. Lovely little birds which you don't see that much of anymore.

Alright Rob, I got some Englishmen this year and hatched them out. Got them penned up at the shoot at the moment, my plan is to tear some each year and release them, not to shoot but just to encourage them to breed on the wild. Big fine for the guns if they shoot any If I get some buy in some fertile eggs next year I'll let you know and I might be able to get you some if you like?

I've only got 24 but if I release those sort of numbers each year I should get a thriving population
