    HI!

    I am offering 12+ Indian Runner Hatching Eggs! (I always send 18:). I have silver, white, black, brown, and fawn & white runners.

    At this time they all run together, so there is no telling what color of babies you will get! Some carry the crest gene.

    I wrap each individual egg in Bounty paper towels (taped shut), placed air sac up in a egg carton. The egg carton is taped shut and placed in a 12" X 12" X 8" priority mail box from USPS filled with wadded paper.

    The box is VERY WELL MARKED! (I believe this is part of the reason my packages make it in good shape and my buyers are having wonderful success for all the different types of eggs I've shipped this way.) Pick up in person is welcome also. I always use delivery confirmation, leave feedback, and send hatching tips.

    Here is a couple of photos of my ducks:)

    I don't see why a chicken couldn't hatch a duck egg. [​IMG] Just make sure she's a good broody because duck eggs take 28 days and chicken eggs take 21 days to hatch.

    I put some under a chicken last summer, but right before they were due to hatch a duck went broody so I switched them to the duck to finish hatching.

  5. Ya I've heard stories of them raising goose eggs and having a heart attack when they go swimming! I know Cochins and Silkies are real broody but I'm not sure if a wyandotte or what I believe is an orpington would be broody enough, would you know how broody those guys are? They are all I have besides an old english game rooster but I'm not sure if he would work [​IMG]

    I have one Orpington that goes broody quite often and she is a very good mom. It all depends on the chicken. [​IMG]
     
  7. Oh cool, well it turned out the 'orpington' was a non white leghorn and the 'wyandotte' was a welsummer and the leghorn isnt a good mom but the welsummer is [​IMG]
