    today i bought 4 cute lil silkie chix and the guy had every other kind of chicken imangenable! right before we left he handed me a egg carton and then he said these r for u! then he said he always gives little kids free fertile eggs if they have a bator.
    he showed me the tiniest egg i have ever seen and he called it a bbr red i think. he also put a duck egg in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don't know nothing about ducks!!!!!!!!
    i just couldn't tell him no thank you.
    do they take 21 days to hatch too???
    do i treat and feed the chix the same way as chicken chix???

    here is a pic of the bigest and tiniest egg he gave me

    Ducks take more humidity and like an extra week I think . I am new though so make shure you get it varified by someone who actually knows for shure

    no fair! i want free fertile eggs. [​IMG] I only have 2 hens and a female duck. So i dont gather enough eggs to fill my incubator, or even make it worth turning it on. [​IMG]

    but congrats on yours! cant wait to see them!
