    Hello everyone! :)

    My good friend, who shall be named the Egg Man, delivered these to me yesterday:
    1527124906460533066690.jpg

    I set all of the eggs on 5/23/18.
    Some of the bantam eggs:

    Hopefully I will have a good hatch. We'll just have to wait and see :)

    The ducks are mixed Ancona and Pekin. The bantams I have no clue.

    June 30th Update
    Patience - male.
    Tanzi and Kendwa are strongly exhibiting female characteristics.
    Zanzi - suspect male.
    Out of the remaining two, one has small waddles and the other does not. I suspect 1 male and 1 female. I don't remember which is which.


    For anyone who would like to know, Egg Man sent me a list of all of the possible mothers of the chicks. Breeds are as follows for eggs B1-B6.
    • Light Brahma bantam
    • Black Wyandotte bantam
    • Brown Leghorn bantam
    • Black Fizzled Cochin bantam (never lays)
    • Rhode Island Red
    • Rhode Island Red x Brown Leghorn

    New Set of 12 Brahma Eggs Added on June 5th (Day 2)





    How exciting!
    Egg Man has to be an awesome person to make such wonderful deliveries.

    Your candle pictures above look like they might have already been incubating for some time, could this be so?

    Egg Man might need some spelling tutorials.

    Yes. As stated in the labeling, the bantam eggs are mid development. They were under a hidden broody and are in different stages of incubation. I have no idea just how far along any one egg is.

    Can't wait to see your hatch results. I started my little batch of bantams 3 days ago.
