The Hatch That BYC Built (aka Frieda vs. the Brinsea!) (Warning--pic heavy) - Page 6

Yep, I was going dry, though the hygrometer (that I'd done the salt test on, with it showing to be 7% low) was showing around 40% :/ I filled both the wells, and I hope that the aircells stay where they are for now.

 

My stomach was sinking with the Sulmtaler eggs until I hit #4 (I think there was some movement there, but I can't remember).

One more week for both--I gave eggs to each contestant within half an hour of each other;) To be technical, Day 21 starts around 3pm on Sunday, November 8.

 

Oh, wait, time change--make that 4pm.

 

And I just realized that I'll be nicely distracted from hovering over the 'bator on Saturday--a bunch of my friends and I are going over to the house of one of the group and watching The Princess Bride. D, whose home we'll be at, has never seen it. This, of course, must be remedied!

Nothing is trivial.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave is only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." 

Where will you spend eternity?

Day 18!

3 of the BCM eggs are nice and full of darkness, but 2 were glowing from top to bottom, so I took them out. The aircells are still a bit large, at up to about 1/3 the egg. I may have seen movement in one, at the membrane.

Pics! 2 of each of the Sulmtaler eggs, even the quitters.








Didn't realize that one was so dark...


Quitter


Dark when lit from the top, quitter from the bottom.

Altogether, there were 3 Sulmtaler eggs I pulled, leaving me with 3 of each breed. I put cut up sponges in the Brinsea, and I will check the hygrometer in a bit.

I stopped turning after the day 14 candle, and tried to set the remaining half dozen eggs upright for hatching. However, I couldn't fit all 6 on one side, so I do have 2 lying down, since they fell over when I slid the tray in.
