Oh on a happy note my husband grudgingly gave me the thumbs up to set another batch after I check all gauges and clean it WELL!!!
I've found that they get pasty butt when they are chilled, or overheated. Watch their temps.

It also shot up wildly at the last minutes. The next one was by the same farm had another 17+ eggs only with 7 Twenste garanteed, the others were Orust and Niederheiners. It stayed at $49 right up to the last 2 minutes. I twitched. I might never get this chance again on my tight budget. I pounced. They returned and i raised once more at 3 seconds annnd GOT IT! If it was one of yall I was bidding against well I would like to say sorry,,,,, sort of.....maybe.....
But I may have to start them early because they will deliver on the 22nd. I am beyond thrilled.

Does anyone know of any breeders with Silver Ameruacanas that sell hatching eggs? Or even chicks?
I am also on the look out for quality welsummer hatching eggs. I have decent stock that I am breeding towards SOP and I really just need a new bloodline, or just one good rooster.
@faykokoWV is in WV and has great Wellies.
