    i'm starting my set batch of eggs on April first! any one want to hatch with me? i'll be setting 38 eggs, barnyard mixes of easter eggers, gold laced wyandottes, columbians, speckled sussex, and golden comets. had a pretty good success rate with my last hatch. 22/38. i didn't think that was bad for a first try. this batch will be going to my brother in law so hoping for another good hatch.

    hope some one joins me!!![​IMG]

    Yes, this is great! I set 10 Saxony Duck eggs just over a week ago. We are on our day 8, but we expect to hatch on Friday, April 20th.

    So count me in!!

    I candled tonight and 4 were clear. 6 are doing great with a lot of nice veining. Good, because I don't want a whole flock of ducks. 2 - 4 ducks would be perfect for me. Any extras we'll post on Craigslist.

    Thanks! I am excited to try my hand at ducklings. I sincerely hope it works out.
