I need someone in Middle TN willing to test hatch some buff orps for me. Of the 6 buff eggs I've had under broody hens, only one has hatched. I think the problem is that they are under tiny little silkies and the weather has been freakishly cold, but I want someone with more controlled conditions to try it. The eggs I have cracked have the bullseye on them, so I'm pretty sure they are fertile. I'm just not having a lot of luck getting them to hatch out. I know daddy is doing the deed as I have hatched 7 buff mutts. I'm just wondering about my hen. Anybody game? I'll give you eggs for free and you can keep the babies. I just need a report back on percentage hatched. I can even throw in some buff/ wyandotte mutt eggs if you want them. Those that have hatched have done great! I'd rather not mail eggs right now, so it will need to be someone within driving distance. I'm in Murfreesboro. Thanks for the help!
