Wow, this is a fast moving forum! I haven't been on since yesterday afternoon and am 125 posts behind!
Update on my eggs: I bought 2 dozen eggs from a local breeder in Phoenix area; next craigslist add I saw from them they were selling all their chickens and moving for some reason. Kinda stinks because I was going to complain about the fertility rate in one of their pens. I had 4 different breed from them, but their Ahola chickens only 1/4 I received was fertile. Plus, they didn't candle the eggs before selling because one of them had a peck-mark and cracks issuing from it.
So: 11/11 runner duck eggs developing and due for lock-down on Sunday.
1/4 Aloha eggs developing
10/12 Crested cream legbar-2 blood rings got pulled (one had a crack, so was expected)
4/4 buff orpington eggs developing
4/4 golden laced wyandotte eggs developing
Super excited for the CCLs and GLWs!!!!!!!!!! Hope I get at least 1girl from those 4 GLW eggs! (More is good, though)
My chicken eggs are due for lock-down on Tuesday (gee-I hope those ducks hatch quickly so my hatcher is empty in time!)
