    I wanted some Ancona. I think they are pretty, not common and I wanted a TRIO. I only found them in one place on ebay, an auction for 20+ eggs. I figured that after they were shipped, normal loss, etc. I wouldn't have too many. Well I got 20 plus a few extras. Put them in the bator and waited. I kept candling and only lost a couple. Today is day 18 and I have 17 in the hatcher, and I saw one wiggling already. I have no idea what I am going to do with all the extras [​IMG] . I think because they are flighty I will have a harder time placing them, but their eggs are a very pretty creamy white. If anybody is in Maine and will want some Ancona in a couple of months let me know [​IMG]
    They are supposed to lay pretty well and the eggs are bigger than I expected, more of a medium size

    it won't be for a while I need to make sure I have 2 hens and a roo, I just had a batch of frizzled hatch and out of 8 only got 1 pullet, so my luck isnt' too good right now. If you are still interested in a couple of months I will let you have some [​IMG]
