Started with 24 eggs
3 were clear
1 chick died during the zipping process
16 have hatched
and 4 remain...I think they are dead. We are on day 23 now.
Two of the eggs that hatched were from our blue/green egg layer mixed with our Buff Orpington rooster.
It's so funny how different they look from each other. The one without stripes hatched yesterday it almost looks like the BO chicks but it's lighter in color and it has poofy cheeks. Is this because the hen has feathers on her cheeks? Also, if anyone could tell me what breed the hen is. What color eggs do you get when mixing a brown layer with a blue/green layer?
Question for you on niacin for these ancona ducklings, they are wasting about a third of their water to the pan under it, should I add more than 100 mg per gal?
I have a bunch of niacin data that I'm putting together. As for adding more to the gallon, you don't need to, 'cause they'll still drink the same amount.
