Anyone Hatching This Year

Recommended Posts

Anyone have plans on incubating and or any broodies?

 

I was thinking of hatching a few magpie ducks for personal use this year, I've a 48 egg incubator but never had anymore than 11 eggs at a time, as I don't rehome/sell poultry just keep what I hatch.

Was stressful last year :laugh: with the hot hot 2 weeks we had the humidity and temp was all over the place.

I've not had broodies wish I did though be more natural lol

 

What yous got in the pipeline?

I have a pekin x sablepoot banty with a clutch of 7 chicks, hatched a week ago. I love my bantams, and the cockerels are just the right size for one each at the table :D

Thanks Mo :-)

Got a broody sitting real tight just now, and a wee batch in the incubator.

Much prefer using broodys, but if you want early chicks that's when the incubator comes in.

do you ever sell any of your chicks?

 

I've been slightly bitten by the 'bird' so to speak :laugh:

 

 

Hope you get a good result - good luck! :thumbs:
