    Sooo.... I've got three broodies on 22 Naked Neck bantam eggs. I thought the NN bantam on 6 was due last week, but nothing hatched. I left her alone and found this today...

    Im pretty sure its a pullet, because I've NEVER hatched a Black Cockeral out of these birds!



    That's all fine and dandy, right? Well then I found this!

    They are on 16 NN bantam eggs together, we'll see what I have on Monday! [​IMG]



    All fine now, right?
    WRONG!

    My pigeons had one baby today, and the other egg was hatching! I tried to get a pic, but the cock bird was smacking the crud out of my with his wings,lol. And I have a duck on a dozen eggs due in a week or two. [​IMG]

    Suz, I was pretty shocked to be honest! I didnt have high hopes for these eggs. Ummm.... well if they all hatch, Im sending half home with you. [​IMG] As for the rabbits, I really dont, sorry. I have one, but I dont know too much about them. I just know he eats,lol.

    Honestly, that little NN has to be one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

    And I love the 2 broodies sitting together.

    Nice looking birds you've got there.
