I have 12 fertilized bantam eggs that I don't know what to do with.
I recently built a raised duck pool for my ducks, and there is a very nice bantam egg laying nest under it I discovered a few weeks ago and I found 2 broodies under it. I removed the eggs and the broodies stopped sitting there and no bantams were laying there. There was no eggs there for a few weeks. Then I noticed that the same hens were shut out of the coop every night so when I unlocked my run to go unlock the coop and they were already foraging. I thought they might be broody in the duck pool nest again. I looked under the pool into the nest and there was 15 bantam eggs! I candled and a dozen have developed. The developed eggs are 6 days old. :th

They are bantam and serama eggs.


Roosters:
Silver mille fleur x mille fleur D'Uccle
Exchequer Serama

Hens:
Exchequer seramas
Mottled D'Uccles
Mille fleur D'Uccles
Silver mille fleur x mille fleur D'Uccle


I can tell if the eggs are Serama or D'uccle but I can't tell which D'Uccles each egg is from or obviously which roosters were involved.


No one wants to buy hatching eggs from multiple breeds in fall? Do they?


Let me know your ideas and I will add them to the poll!


(I can not hatch any :))
