    I was so excited when I say my muscovey's eggs were pipping yesterday evening. When I got home from work, she was standing over 6 chocolates and a 7th was still not out of the egg!! I have 1 chocolate hen and it looks as if these may have been all her eggs. She, in fact, is on another nest of 13-15 eggs!!!

    I'll have to get pictures tomorrow because it is too dark. They are soooo cute!!!

    Is the father a black or a chocolate or what color?
    If a black crosses with a chocolate then what hatches out is black males carrying chocolate and chocolate females. But chocolate to chocolate is 100% chocolate.
    Congrats on babies! [​IMG]
