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.
