Has anyone been egg shopping on ebay lately? I have been looking for egg assortments and am getting quite frustrated! While "mutt" ducks are beautiful and sweet, I am trying to get breeding sets for next years breeding season and there isn't much market for mutt ducklings around here, but that seems to be all I find on ebay! I like the assortments so I can get a mix of breeds and it gives me varied bloodlines. But I've emailed a bunch of sellers on there and every "assortment" is just for mixed breed eggs! I don't get it, I have had great luck in the past getting assortments of eggs, all pure breeds, and all of a sudden it's all mixed flocks. Where did all the assortments of pure eggs go? Grrrr...Oh and the people selling barnyard specials confuse me. One will send you 2 turkey eggs, 6 bantam chicken eggs, 6 chicken eggs, 2 african goose eggs and 4 duck eggs. The ducks pictured are muscovies. Now, chickens and turkeys are 21 day hatchers, right? Goose are about 28 I think and muscovies are 35 days, so how will that hatching work? If you only have one incubator you'd have to set the chickens and turkeys 2 weeks after setting the ducks, wouldn't that lessen the chance of them hatching? Sorry, just frustrated with ebay tonight. LOL I'm probably just cranky anyway, today is my due date and still no baby! Grrrr....
