Go lucky!

 

I need to candle my eggs tonight. Hoping they are ok, had a temp spike up to 106. I tried candling woodie, but I'm not seeing movement. It wasn't up there for very long, so I'll candle tonight and hope it didn't kill anyone. fl.gif

QJ, did you get your silver apples from Dprather ebay seller?  If Celtic does not have eggs to sell me, then this seller looks really good to me.

Yes! That's him.  He was nice.  I would to have liked to get more than 4, but all were fertile but 1.  So that's just nature. 

 

And I realized now I was thinking about my Saxony's.  Does someone on here have Saxony's?  I swear I can't keep it all straight anymore.

If all goes well, I should have Saxony ducks in about 26 days. :)

QJ, very cool!!!  I can buy eggs from him to ship out Monday if Celtic cannot sell me a few.  I figure I may as well get a few duck eggs if I will have the bator running for my 2 new toulouse eggs.  And hubby said he'd rather have SA over more cayuga eggs.

 

I sure wish Christine would come online with an update on her ancona "take a chance" eggs!!
