well at last it looks like the dreded hatch rate thing is over i put 4 eggs under a Silky three Plymouth rock and one cross breed Rock with Silver Grey Dorking just to see and they all hatched out this morning or yesterday while i was in Perth picking up my duck eggs thanks Sue I will let you know how they get on next week end i have 10 Rock eggs in the bator should hatch out on Saturday I already know that the Welsummer roo I have is firing blanks but he is young 11 months old ?? I will test him again next couple of weeks if he has not picked up he will have to go all in all an improvement on last year Trev
Great ,good to hear that the eggs are hatching .i have 6 in my incubator looking good from CK . :)about to get some bantam saxony duck eggs for my broody duck. I picked up some godburd hens to keep gold finger my rooster and my surviving girl company. |He generously gave me 12 eggs so I have got myself thrown in at the deep end again. Will see how it all goes.

its good to have you back lets hope that it all works out well for you I am back into ducks again thought I would never do it I picked up a dozen and a half on Saturday I paid for the dozed and got the half for free very nice of her they are now in the bator very warm and cosy there a cross between a Apple yard and a Aylesbury white eggs and blue eggs from the cross Apple yard and Harliquin should be interesting now I hope they all hatch for me and on Wednesday I should have two Dozen welsummer eggs to go into a bator there from the east QLD and the thing that worries me is the long flight as before when i lost the lot of them just cant help myself I just love them I have expanded my pens again after shrinking everything last year should have left things well alone trev
Oh good luck with them , My lot are due this Thursday and Friday I have a couple of Wellsummers in as D couldn't get any to hatch so I am giving it a go in my good incubator. I put some indian game eggs in to see if any are fertile they all are but may all be crosses as I only paired them up after she had started to lay.
Thanks for that chooky I think I will give it a miss for a while after loosing all the last lot @ $ 10 per egg and the welsummers I have on the way and the duck eggs I have just bought up she goes although I would still love to get some Trev
