Hello,

Posting pics on behalf of belucky, he's having a bit of trouble uploading pics at the moment.

A mixture of Hennie muffs, Hennie, Taiwan.

Belucky will give a better description.

Incubator did well for me about 140 off. Had 32 outta 34 egg's from the states too. Hens haven't done to well though. 4 and 5 chick hatches when mostly about 10+. Maybe it's something to do with the cold nights.

Hatch. 2 different family's. There was 38 sent but only 34 fertile. Still good to say they've come all that way.
