    I've never worried about the roosters. It's the broody hens that I'm sacred of.

    I hope they all hatch! [​IMG]

    At least 10+ and everybody knows that hatching eggs can only be bought by the dozen so might as well just put them all in.

    Exactly... I was setting 7.... I set 17. :oops:
    9 are clear though so it is a good thing I set so many! :lau

    And that's why you set 17 instead of 7 because of the chance that some would be clear.

    I love to see hatching rationalizations!

    I set 12 expecting that at least 4 would not make it. Pulled two clears at candling. Checked everyone this morning and broody had two eggs out from under her. They were cool to the touch. I pushed them back under so we will see if they make or not. If not, my math works out. :)

    I would love to set 7 but I have to wait for her to lay them and I don't think she likes my roosters, I was just given her -she's a polish and she was laying the day she got here so I figured I would throw them in and hope for them to hatch
    Can't wait to pic the ducks up and there will be many pictures

    so true


    good thing u set extras!
