    Awww sorry about those.. [​IMG] better luck with the rest! Too many posts to list one, so I'll give you a quick rundown from lockdown.

    7 duck eggs, only 3 hatched
    7 lav orps - all 7 hatched! Yeah!
    6 silkie/cochin - 5 hatched
    4 mutts - only 1 hatched.

    Did eggtopsies last night. All fully formed, some unabsorbed yolks, most were internally pipped. All the duck eggs were internally pipped. Those mutt chicks were HUGE!
    But I'm still happy with the hatch.

    :gig


    :fl good luck! I now have 21 set!


    You amaze me Turk! I'm having a good amount of pre-sales too. I hope they pan out. Someone asked for 4 pullets in spring. That's make 4 people on my wait list. For me and my small backyard flock, that's a lot but not close to your 30! :gig Do you ever take a deposit or just go on good faith?

    What is it exactly? The feathers grow out instead of in? My neighbor has a white call he bought at auction like that. All the wing feathers point out. He trimmed them down so they don't look as bad but I didn't realize it was a "thing".
