Sooooo I forgot to check the eggs yesterday, yeah DOH me....
but I candled and marked air cells quick this morning,
they are starting drawing down and pop bodies up inside the backs, oopsies... MY BAD again....
ignore thermo/hygros I unscrew my lights to candle and leave my lid open
I WILL NOTE, for the first time incubating fridge eggs, they didnt loose weight as fast as the others so not sure how they will hatch out.
Makes food for thought, Holding onto good PH from cold storage?, change of shell Pores? membrane structure?
air cells looked bigger than the others at start, they were older. Lack of OXY in fridge? lets see how they hatch
so I think its 24 lockdown and 26 went in.... one clear and one early death at a candle (Our own Eggs)
Sooooo these are the eggs my hubs has in the bator because we need ONE CCL rooster yes I said ONE CCL ROOSTER,
note there are different color eggs in there? also note the XXL eggs in the center!!!!
Well here is the story, he candles CCL eggs the biggest blue eggs (note color stinks in this image but eggs are really pretty lol)
anyways, he candles and he says he sees this stuff floating in the eggs other than the yolk and thinks they are bad for some reason,
and he is afraid they wont hatch so he sets a bunch more just in case his gutt is right, then he asks me if he can set some of the Crested Barred Rock eggs, he has two in his hand and two of the XXL eggs in his hand, NOTE HIS FIRST TIME EVER HATCHING EGGS, I said whatever just hatch what you want I aint taking care of chicks, you are OUTSIDE NOT INSIDE, so he says, well in that case I need more Crested Barred Rock eggs, I told him I just put them in the fridge because we eat all of those eggs, he asks me if I think they will hatch and I said IDK never did it, try it if he wants, praying they wont. He candles last night think it was like day 10 or 13 idk he dont know when he set them lol, they look like day 12 and he tells me they all are growing!!!!!!! SAY WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL ARE GROWING!!!! OH NO THEY AINT!!! NO NO NO so I candle and gosh dang it, even the old boogers and cold boogers are big old embryos!!!
So anyone local needs CCL and Crested Barred Rocks give me a buzz in a few, I just want a ROO
I JUST WANT A ROO OR TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST WANT A ROO OR TWO I JUST WANT A ROO OR TWO
