    So, are you due to hatch the 21st? I have also set 8 of my Ameracaunas, due to hatch 3/22 am anxiously awaiting a dozen buff orpington eggs via mail. I have read great things about the breed and look forward to having a couple of them, hopefully. Good luck with your hatch, and look forward to pictures!

    Carson,

    Not a single egg fertile out of 41? I have seen quite a few posts where you are selling your BO eggs..Have you proven out your hatch rate? it might benefit you to do so, by hatching a couple of sets before you sell. If you end up selling infertile eggs you might get a bad rap and no one will buy from you in the future. No one wants that for anyone!

    My eggs are fertile now but none were cause I just got new chickens and the hens weren't all that fond of a big rooster on them lol but they are breeding left and right
