    I have just bid on some mottled pekin chicken eggs and some frizzle eggs. Can anybody give me some information about incubating them please? They'll be in the same incubator. I have incubated 18 call duck eggs before and only got 1 baby that survived so im worried about this hatch :/ Thanks

    Get 2 of each. At least [​IMG] I honestly can't make a suggestion. I'd just take both LOL Why don't you look at these reviews of the different breeds: Chicken Breeds See what others think and weigh the +'s and -'s
