    We set 60 eggs, 4 breeds and out of 18 silkie eggs had 3 hatch, one had failure to thrive, one got wry neck and the one that survived is a roo with no bantys in the flock.

    Good gracious. That is bad. The wry neck is so hard to deal with once it has set in.

    The first hatch was a muscovy duck. She was pretty young. Layed about 30 eggs and non hatched. About 35 days into it she started to eat her eggs. By the 40th day she did not have any eggs left:( she was delicious

    Mine are simple, bought hatching eggs, even so I hatched trader joe leghorns with no problem, those Seramas I got didn't hatch. all died :( Next try I got one to hatch then the 3rd try I got 3 out of 24 to hatch!

    But that's ok, 'cause they're my favorite, love ems!
