Is Oliver with the wyandottes? I am not sure at the moment whether the fertility problem is Chunky or the girls. I don't have any fertile Wyandotte eggs even from the ladies with Frank. Odd since there was fertility in January.
Oliver is out with everyone except for silkies and Swedish flower hens. I'm looking for Olive Egger chicks so I'm just grabbing those eģgs. But since March, zero viable eggs. Very odd. Now he's going to be 7yrs this year and he won't stand to have another rooster out with him. Which is why my silkies are in another pen and coop. Oliver is the main man :stars:

Totally happy to do that for you....under the condition you take them back once they hatch.....I'm watching my package of hatching eggs coming from Alberta right now...they should be here by tomorrow I'm setting those eggs Thursday night or Friday morning. I've been very selective this summer. I've only been hatching light coloured silkies...buff, red pile, blue creams. The eggs that are coming are splash and paints. That's all I'm keeping.......so happy to hatch along with mine :stars: just let me know :wee:

I don't take chickens into the flock at all except for from one source, however I will do a hatch (hopefully) and we'll see what the results are. If I end up with some olive eggers we'll talk? Your new eggs sound interesting we'll wait for pics.
