Hi from Bedfordshire, England

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My parter and I have just recently bought a small holding in Bedfodshire, beautiful spot.
I've always been around animals back in my native Australia so naturally have to get something....
We bought an incubator online as I've never incubated chickens before, well - I lost so much sleep with worry!!! Anyway finally got through our first hatch. Out of 12 eggs 2 were infirtile from the start 6 hatched and 4 didn't hatch.

Now I've just set in the incubator duck eggs!! Very excited to see how it all goes smile.png

Welcome to BYC, glad you joined in.  First hatches are always the hardest!  Hope you current hatch goes well :)

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome Georgie Girl,  I think everyone  hatching chicks  suffers from the "blind staggers,"  due to being up all night, without sleep, waiting for something to happen.

If you haven't found it yet, there is a lot of information available on incubating in the Learning Center (along with a lot of other info):
