    I’m planning on setting some Easter eggers on the 13th. Anybody with me? They will be buff colored and adorable :wee I’m better at duckies and haven’t had ANY luck with chickens yet :he but this time I’m really going to commit! The last times I’ve tried it I’ve had duck eggs in with them, and I’m sure that doesn’t help much:caf

    I might do a December hatch, it depends on what I get in my November hatch. I love Easter eggers!

    I will be joining in. The dark side tempted me and I have Isbar eggs being shipped out today, I should have them Monday and placed in incubator on Tuesday. Silly me, I thought I was going to clean and store the incubators until spring.

    I've got 12 Bobs that are 8-9 wks old, 18 "assortment" that are 3-4 wks old, 85 Pansy, Sexlink & Feather-sexable in the Incubator. My assortment hatched out several Tuxes, a Tibetan, a couple Rosettas & Scarlets, a White, a couple Pharaohs, an Egyptian, 2 Silvers & a Gray/Blue looking one.... we call them DUMB "quailies", because they're so cute!
