    gol - beautiful birds! do they have the feathered feet? I know nothing about hatching eggs - only familiar with chicks, but these are lovely.

    Out of all the eggs you sent me, I have one d'uccle chick. She is under a broody hen, I swapped out with her and she took the baby. So far so good. I have never had a d'uccle but she sure is cute. I am saying 'she" in hopes that it will be. If I only have one, it needs to be a she. How soon can you tell the difference? Thanks. Hope you get a buyer..

    Marie, none of the silkie made it either? I thought they were doing good. Oh, I'm so sorry! [​IMG] The Seramas are a bear to hatch, I can get them to develop so nicely right up to about day 14 and then at some point after that, I lose so many, very fustrating! I've gotten much better luck than that hatching the Mille's here than you did. Let me know when you have room in the your incubator and I will send more eggs. BTW, I can usually get a pretty good idea at about six weeks who's a roo and who's a hen, but I have been wrong before. [​IMG]

    Jefra, yes, the D'Uccles have feather-footing, alot! I have one little pullet that looks like she has feathered paddles for feet! The D'Uccles are one of my favorite breeds. [​IMG]

    Double-T, thanks for the nice comments about my Mille's. I've never shown them, but I've been giving it some thought. My Mille's didn't lay at all during the winter and it has only been over the last few weeks that they have really got going this season, the stinkers! [​IMG] I just hatched out a couple of their first eggs of the season, the chicks are about three weeks now, I sold all but one that I just really liked. Now that is a problem, I keep to many I hatch out just bacause I really like them! [​IMG] Sorry to hear about your chicks, I'm always worried the light will burn out.

    As far as the bantam cochins, I have a mixed flock, color wise... Black, white, blue, red, gold-laced, silver pencil and a couple of the hens are frizzle as well. Wish you were closer, all my girls are broody and I have banty cochin chicks popping out all over the place right now, you could pick and chose. If you ever want some banty cochins eggs, I will sale them for $20 for 12+ with shipping included in that price. [​IMG] Editing to add.... I'm always willing to trade eggs, too, if you are ever interested.

    Wegotchickens, my Mille's, with the exception of one pullet, came from local people who were raising them. The roo and two of the hens came from Trish out of Oreana, Idaho, my other two hens came from Kristen out of Meridian, Idaho who had got her original stock from eggs she had shipped from a private individual "back east" and the pullet came from Ideal. Don't know if that really helps much, but that is all the info I have regarding their background. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info SherrieKim! I had already ordered some Millie eggs from some one else, but know I would like to hatch more in another month or so to take to my sis. If you still have some early June, that is...
