    A predator destroyed half my flock this morning, so I now have my Brinsea stuffed with my own eggs. We lost our gorgeous Roadie the Roo, so I am hoping for another one in this hatch.

    Also if anyone knows of anyone with duck eggs please let me know. There are none listed in BST.

    Quote:My dear please save them. I have a full bator right now, but want, no NEED to hatch ducks right after that.

    Quote:Thank you so much!!! That auction is closed, but I messaged the seller. I am still in shock tonight, and really glad the nesting boxes had enough of my RIR eggs in there. I have a mix in the bator but I am hoping for a RIR roo to replace Roadie. Though he was a mix, but he was gorgeous. We found his leg in the field next door. [​IMG]
