    I set 19 eggs. Australorp, Australorp/dominique, Australorp/Sussex, Australorp/ Rhode Island Red. All of my very own eggs.

    I figure with 19 I should have a few good table boys with the size of the parents, and decent production out of the females as well, even if something goes wrong and I have a low hatch rate.:D. My goal is breed for size first, production second.
     
  8. im gonna et eggs soon and then I'm gonna hatch but its my first time!
