    I have been really lucky with some great hatches! But for some reason last eggs (due last Saturday) have had issues. I have 2 born on Sat but that was it...out of 12 eggs. Both still had blood in their shells...quite a bit. A few died in their shell too. I stagger hatches and all others have been fine. So I have to chalk it up to a)luck b)Harsh PO treatment c)Operator error (meaning I some how screwed up). I still have them in hatcher...hopeful thinking. Absolutely not sellers fault...all developed to some point.

    Anyways does anyone have any eggs for sale in this variety. I was sooooooo lucky I got the last ones even. I know they go fast....

    1/2 a dozen would do even.

    You might want to try ***--she's got cockerels galore & may have an extra one for sale that you can pair up with your hen I'm bringing you. [​IMG] Just an idea. Otherwise, I'll have eggs for sale next spring.

    Edited to say that I'd be willing to bring you down a roo, if you end up with one from ***

    ***. I'm trading her one of my black orp pullets for one of her blue cockerels and she may be buying another black orp pullet from me....I remember her sending me pics & saying she's got LOTS of extra roos!

    Thank you I will see what I can find out. A roo would be nice. [​IMG]

    I just don't want to give up on hatching yet. Only I don't want to hatch just anything because everything I hatch needs to have a purpose. Even the silkies are useful...or so they say they make good bators... lol (We will see....they are my DD). So I am looking for eggs of certain types.

    I have a bunch of chicks alive and kicking at the moment (Barred Rock, BluexBR, EE (4 all together from two different hatchs...still learning), Silkies, Buff Orps, Quail, and now a couple of B/B/S Orps). I have only had a zero hatch once so for a newbie I'm not doing so bad. 10 hatches since September. 3 different bators. I am far from discouraged.

    I just went and counted every chick from every hatch (including quail) and I have 51 chicks still alive and doing good (quail or chicken...ages day old - 4 weeks old) [​IMG]

    Try Miss Prissy or bamachicken. I have no idea what their wait time is but it is worth checking into.
