We bought 18 eggs, 12 of Dark Barred Plymouth Rock Bantams and 6 Columbian Wyandotte Bantams. Only bantams for me. I had been searching for the dark barred Plymouth Rocks for a couple of years. Bantam varieties of these are hard to find in Australia. I was so excited to have my eggs.
I candled the eggs a week later and it appeared there was a possibility of four chicks. Whoopee. A few days later I checked again, removing the empty eggs and the ones where the chicks had died. Yes, four large chicks. They are due out in a few days. Hope everything is good with them and that they are all females.
