    Just being realistic here but all 12 eggs aint gonna hatch and i dont care if someone is the king of incubating .And also bear in mind there may be a chance none do. Plus if you get a pair of unrelated adults and you take care of them properly you wont have NO problem selling any of the offspring to offset your adults cost..Trust me. These are rare birds that few people keep. Not for beginners by any means.

  8. Surely at least half would hatch :/ but yes you never know if they're related! I've had chickens for a while and so have my grandpa for years and years. Lots of info and tips there!
