    Araucanas! Not only do chicks that are homozygous for the tufting gene always die in shell, I found out through research reading studies that heterozygous chicks for tufting have their chance of dying in shell increased by 20%. Talk about a lethal gene!

    I have seramas in now, from a grab bag... I hear they can be hard... so I figure they won't hatch... hehe...

    I cant incubate scovies for the life of them. I had a hard time with seramas too, but atleast i had one survivor.
