    I've been looking like crazy to find pure breed eggs to set under my hen. I wanted to find some close so I could pay cash. And the great thing is its two breeds that I've been wanting to get.
    Welsummer and Gold Lakenvelders.
    So I'll have some for broody and some for the bator.
    I'll set them at the same time and I'm hoping that broody will raise them all.
    I pick them up tomorrow.
    I want to thank everyone that offered me eggs your all great.
    And I would of got some of them if it would have worked out on the time but with a broody I needed to get them asap.
    And the paypal thing would of made it push back 5 days more.
    Any way thinks again.

    good luck... if i may give you some advice i would like to remind you to put some of both eggs under the broody so that she will exept all the eggs from the bator once they hatch IE: i once had a broody maran who set some red sexling eggs and after they hatched i tried introducing some Barred rocks and she would not accept them because they stood out from her origional chicks

    Thank you, that was just what I thought I should do.
    She is a great Mom and I hope it works out it will be getting warm here at that time so it will be good all around.
