EOs from Mille Fleur group 


Elevators babies were a disappointment  3 hatched out of 14 :( 

I don't know what I am doing wrong.  I will try the next group in the Brinsea.


All the best,

Re: June 10th Hatch

Glad to hear you had a good Spitz hatch.  Too bad the Elevator eggs didn't.  What was the problem with them you think?  I had horrible hatch rates with my EO's early on too but this last hatch I had 4 out of 8 eggs set hatch.  I lost 3 along the way so 4/5 that made it to day 18 hatched and all have good feet!  Two have a tiny bit of a black stripe at the back of their head and a black line right behind the eye. 
Our Porcelain d'uccles appear to be a trio however I don't think they are bearded.

Re: June 10th Hatch

Not Bearded?!!That is terrible!  I wonder if the original breeder mixed in booted bantam blood.  :banginghead:   Boot Bantams are very similar to d'Uccles.  Feel free to sell them and I will give your kids free replacements with big muffs.  Just tell me the age group you would prefer.  The youngest groups are still in our home.

Re: June 10th Hatch

Guib, what I think happenned to Elevator's babies was that I got busy and didn't check the water pails for the Sporsman.  They were without any water for about three days before lockdown.

Re: June 10th Hatch

As long as they had water at lockdown that shouldn't matter too much.  I actually put no water at all into my incubator this last hatch only added water for lockdown.

If you need some you know where to find some eggs.  I have a broodie silkie hen that is interested in about 8 porcelain d'uccle eggs in exchange for a couple of dozen Spitz eggs if you're up for a drive.

Would love to gubi but I have just recently done a downsize.  I love the ones I got from you that are in my mixed layer pen.  So I will have to decline, but if you want some Porcelain eggs I am more than happy to give you some.  Now are you up for the drive!!!  LOL

Recently downsized means there is room again doesn't it? :whistle: Thanks for the offer but you know me I'm a stay at home farmer.

Re: June 10th Hatch

Well I am going to try real hard not to :whistle:  I sold some of my older EO girls and Kramer, but I am already setting up another breeding pen for next year with my chicks and Poplar Girls chicks.   I also sold a few bantams (no money in the eggs) and feed the costs are just about killing me, not to mention the work.........

I will have some Porcelain chicks hatching around the 24th if you are interested.  Collected the eggs for a lady that decided not to take them so I couldn't wast them :whistle:

Sorry Kathy........post hijack!!!   :oops:

Re: June 10th Hatch

Hi Gubi,
How soon would you like the hatching  eggs? Free of course, I didn't realize that some of my  porcelain breeders have booted bantam in thier genes.  I will contact their breeder.
Would you be willing to do a short dairy farm tour for my brother and nephew?  they just arrived from Finland.  My nephew has never seen a dairy farm!  I have 24 Porcelain eggs set aside for you and your silkie. Hopefully that will make up for Elevator babies being so late. 
I figured out what I did wrong.  I was a day late on lockdown! They were still in a dry enviorment and being turned when they should have been in lock down.  Sorry!  I am putting in another two dozen today.  Sorry!


All the best,

He has never seen a dairy farm!!!  We'll have to change that!  Thanks for the offer of that many eggs, I'm afraid my silkie would only be able to cover about 1/3 of that.  I have been farming all of my live and know all to well that we are working with animals and that there are a lot of things out of our control.  I'm just glad that this time it's not happening at my end :whistle:
