First Welsh Harlequin hatch of the year : )

Outside I have the 5 adult Welsh Harlequins – Jenny, Jack and Jill (Gil) and Silver and Goldy that were Lou’s. I’ve tried everywhere to get 1 or preferably 2 females to add to the group as 2:3 is not a good ratio, but without access. This was an opportunity to hatch some more females but as often with hatches things didn’t quite go to plan…

I got 12 quality eggs, I’d wanted more than 12 but that was all they had available. Only 4 hatched and then one of them died (as happens) leaving 2 boys and a girl. Deja vu!! Jenny & 2 boys, here we go again!
