    My husband won't be if he sees I have the incubator almost overflowing with eggs again though! I set 16 Blue Orpingtons and our ducks' first 3 eggs. I didn't know ducks were so sneaky about burying eggs. Just my luck my first hatch of Blue Orpingtons has turned out to be all pullets! What are the chances of that?!

    I have a rooster who has a full-time job now with 7 ladies LOL I must have bought a pullet incubator, because 4 of the 5 Sultans I hatched are pullets too.
