    There are a few breeders down that way, should be able to get you most breeds. CHookloop springs to mind down Yarloop way, they have a website. I have never bought from there though so I can't pass judgement on stock or service.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Very cool, I would love a duckling or three....but not too keen on having full grown ducks hahahaha

    Welcome Aussie!

    Congrats on the new arrivals Kimbo :) very cute.

    Can I admit to getting rather frustrated. I have today not one but three chickens who seem to have taken up residence yet again in the nesting box. This is getting beyond a joke. I don't remember when we last went a week without a broodie. These breeds may be cute and friendly but I'm really starting to question how practical they are.

    Maybe your nesting area is so lovely they can't help but go broody :). Seriously now though its a bummer when they are broody and you don't want them to be.

    I would not add anymore water. Those incubators are know for being not good at temp and humidity. If your humidity is too high the chicks will drown. I fyou have facebook. Join the group called incuabtion station. THere will be people on there that have the same incuabtor i am sure and tell you step by step what they did.
