    Welcome to my hatching thread :) :woot

    I am jumping into my first year of hatching D'Uccle bantams on a larger scale and I'm excited. This thread will document however many hatches I get in by the end of July. Not all chicks will be kept, expect that.

    This post is going to be a little dishevelled, I know :oops:

    My clutches of this year are being set in a new Farm Innovator Model 4250 that I accidentally bought (whoops). So now I have an incubator :wee

    Currently, I am incubating 24 eggs. 4 Mille Fleur D'Uccle eggs from my own pair and 20 Porcelain D'Uccle eggs won in auction from @TJChickens

    I am on day 2 today.

    During this time, I will be collecting eggs from my only D'Uccle female since I'm limited in breeders and want to set asap after these hatch (if they do).

    Yes. Some will go into my MF flock, a few special ones will make up their own.

    I can't get them to show up on camera, but a few eggs have a bobbing, barely visible redish tiny mass in the center. Yesterday, red disks (not rings) were observed in the few eggs I sampled.
