    Quote:No it's more that people over here don't like shipping egg's, they're to scared the eggs will crack. Same as with young birds, let's just say that shipping live animals as in birds and chickens is not done. We don't have the hatchery's overhere for private use...

    Just one question, how can you see at this age of the chicks which is a roo and which a hen?

    Kim, I have 9 wellie eggs (and 1 barnevelder egg) in lockdown! Keep your fingers crossed, these babies survived 3 power outages! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Okay everyone, it's time to show off my wonderful Wellies that I got from Kim and hatched out. Tell me what you guys think, but I believe I have 4-5 girls and/or 1-2 boys. All chicks are very strong and great looking.

    Kim, is Odin the father of these little guys? I hatched over 50% on shipped eggs. Great job Kim.

    So adorable Les! I think I see 2 boys there, but Kim could tell you better than I can.

    Mine are supposed to hatch Tuesday, but I expect they may be a tad late with surviving the power outages with our last snowstorm.

    Very cool. I saw my some of my little Wellies from Kim squirming around inside their eggs this morning day 9 going on 10. Waiting on 11 total due the 18th...
    These pictures make me even more psyched than I already am!

    Quote:Thanks Les! Congratulations! Great job incubating and hatching Mr.! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes, Odin is their father. He and the few girls that are in with him are the only Wellies that I have now, except a few chicks but my friend is suppose to take 4- 1 mos. old pullets, so that would leave me with one chick (pullet [​IMG]). Sold all of the rest as layers. Maybe I'll incubate one more set for myself before I turn them loose. Unless I can talk my bestfriend into on having 3 of them, but she loves them and has some 2 year old hens I gave her as chicks and would like to get some fresh layers growing out. I know....I'll give her eggs to hatch out. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    BTW: I see 5 girls and 1 boy. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the kind words Wellie Friends!!!!!!!


    HappyChooks~ Good Luck with those eggs! I hope you have a great hatch. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
