    No advice but I'm currently doing my first staggered hatch. I'll let you know how it goes. One due tomorrow and the other four days later.

    Ok thank you. I have two incubators, am going to use one as a hatcher, but its not very reliable at all. Glad only mutt eggs are going into it.

    IKR! He has brought me quite a few eggs in the past. In fact, the majority of my chickens have descended from his Welsumers :)

    They must be beautiful. Could you share some pics? I am planning on having a few in my spring/summer order with BOrps, Easter eggers, BCMs for a variety of egg colors. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    One of my Welsumers, "D", is in my profile pic. They are gorgeous landrace birds--lots of shades of brown from tan to deep mahogany. They have good personalities, but are a little loud. [​IMG]

    BeetandSteet, Thank you. They are beautiful. It must have been difficult to part with that handsome rooster!

    You're welcome! It was. I am hoping to get another rooster from this hatch to breed with my Welsumer hens. Possibly looking to breed Welsumer chicks to sell. Who knows :)
