Developing Dutch Eggs

The Dutch eggs got candled today (three of the twenty), and all three had chicks developing well.  I have another nine eggs in a new incubator with a turner (too soon to candle), and if all of them hatch, there will be twenty-nine Dutch chicks.  And a hen just decided to go broody, and is sitting on another 10+ eggs.  Luckily I have a plan for all the chicks, and none of them will be unwanted if they hatch (even the roosters).   The Dutch chicks Millie hatched are almost fully-feathered.  The little Cream is almost certainly a rooster (his name is Milford), and I think the Blue Cream’s a hen (her name’s Dutchy).

Hopefully more cute and healthy Dutch chicks!

    Hello I’m looking for a pair of cream light brown Dutch bantams for my son. Is there any way you can help him out? Really appreciated if you can help us out. Thanks

  2. I’m not selling any Dutch, and they’re mostly all little chicks anyway. If you’re looking for Dutch, I would suggest googling “cream light brown Dutch Bantam” or something like that, and then looking for promising links. They’re really hard to find, and the I’ve heard that the hatchery Dutch are not usually standard. Dutch are amazing little birds, and from my experience even the roosters are not mean.
