    So i got some red and blk and white sex-links we started collecting there eggs and decided to try our hand at hatching. I found BYC TG and read page after page of posts. I said we can do this so we bought Hova Bator with fan and egg turner and a humidity reader digital ect. So in they went with rouen duck eggs. We kept humidity at the 50% then 65 on day 18. Well they pip and poke a hole and just stop for like 24 + hours like they cant turn there head to zip. Some rocked and rolled and nver piped. i know you loose some its part of the learning curve . But i swear these things just make a circle and sit there. So a friend on BYC sugested i start a thread to see if anyone else can share there stories of sex-link hatching. Several in chat said that they had hatched for yrs and also found trouble with these. SO PLEASE help girl out share your stories. Also they seem pretty agressive they go for each others eyes? I have 9 out so far I will post as they progress.
