Yes,
To try to make the three and four weeks go quicker, I am going to do another hatch lotto. I will take pictures tonight of the eggs and to mix things up a bit i have duck eggs as well as chook eggs so the suspence will be drawn out an extra week!
Pics to follow then entries will open

Hi,
Sorry, I should have explained.
I will take a picture of my eggs in the incubator and entrants need to guess which ones will hatch and which ones wont. 1 point for a correct guess and -1 for an incorrec guess. The person with the most at the end of the hatch wins. I will donate a byp mug for the winner. I will take a picture now.
So i need your username, followed by the egg letter and then either a 'y' for yes it will hatch or a 'n' for no it wont hatch. here is an example:
sigridpitkin, AY, BN, CN, DY, EY...........MMY, NNN, OOY etc etc.
Pic to follow
Most of the eggs have been picked up from a friend but some have been posted so it will be tricky!

yes, all in the one incubator. I hadnt heard that before. Last lot of ducklings I hatched out, all 4 of the fertile ones hatched and they were incubated with chicken eggs.
