    Fertility at home has been 100%.
    Hatch rate at home has been around 90-95%. I'm not sure if this is because I am constantly doing staggered hatches or because some of the hens are a little older. Please keep this in mind if you bid.

    Also, please be aware that d'Uccle eggs are fragile and can be tricky to hatch, especially after shipping. I will pack well but cannot guarantee hatchability due to the Post office. They will be shipped Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.

    The eggs will all be no older than 3 days at the time of shipping and from 2 different pens. The parents are all showbirds or retired showbirds that have always won or placed well at shows. I have several hens that have gotten Best or Reserve of Breed and the same is true of my main rooster. The younger roo has won in his category at 2 shows, but not gotten a Breed award (yet).
