    Wish I had some to set. Anyday, my welsh harlequin ducks should start laying again. I can't wait to start hatching some more duckies.

    In my mutt group, possible dads are welshies!!! The KC combos I'm hoping for super egg layers in a larger body. All my super layers next to my KCs are mallard mixes. I'm getting 8-13 eggs a day with an almost 100% fertility rate of checked eggs! I'm hoping to get some silver welshie females this year from Holderreads.

    My eggs just arrive in the mail! All uncracked, 11 detached air cells and one saddle cell. Will be setting when they reach room temperature :-D

    I suspect it'll be a few fewer after candling but hopefully plenty of little feathered leg beauties in a couple of weeks. Incubator is an old style Brinsea Octagon 20 with auto turn cradle that has served me very well for nearly 10 years. Of course it helps to learn how your own incubator works with all of its temperature and humidity idiosyncrasies.
