Intothebuff Our pipes froze and broke. I had eggs in both my incubator and hatcher. They are using big commercial dryers and dehumidifiers. Do my eggs have a chance of hatching? It is so dry in the house. They are still reading the right humidity, but no pipping on day 20. @Intothebuff update please!!

PRUrbanFarmer broody momma chicks were due 13th did you add more eggs, and will this be staggered for her? @PRUrbanFarmerDay 25 1/17 and our first light Sussex hatched under mama hen early this morning in her nesting box and another is starting to pip
Fire BCM couple dozen in there from our laying pen that will be mixed, hatching thurs-fri 1/15. other sets? Making bators too. Just cleared the hatcher of 22-23 dry babies. Lots of wet ones (about same amount) left in there and 7 or 8 more pipped. Looks like it's shaping up to be another 90%+ hatch again. A couple dozen BCM's and about 3 dozen out of our free range layer pen.
Sally sara has polish set for HarmonyAnn due 1/21, ccl, mix bantams, LOCKDOWN mixed bantams, legbar, projects! Mon 1/18, set more ccl, project eggs
Gimmie @gimmie birdies update please!
J&TRanch 1/12/16 12 self blue Cochin bantams (shipped) day 3 (going to candle today to see how many are viable).... And 18 eggs arriving in the mail tomorrow @J&Tranch My shipped self blue bantam Cochins are doing good. I had to throw out a stinker and a seeper 😟 So out of those 10 remaining, 7 are developing nicely 😀 They're on day 7. I ended up receiving 16 shipped from GA, they looked good considering the single digit temps- only 3 saddles and none cracked. They're on day 3 today, will candle Wednesday maybe.
Countrylovin lockdown on Thursday 1 cream legbar and 3 ee. Bought 2 chicks Thelma and Louise! buff Orpingtons
Saris 40 eggs in the bator. Though 10 are shipped 2/10 shipped eggs doing good. 29/30 local eggs going strong.

Chaos18 16 (14 Dominiques and 2 BCM) at day 10 I pitched 1 clear Dom so I'm down to 15 eggs. Will candle tonight for day 14 and hopefully go into lockdown with 15 eggs on Saturday.
Cynthia12 eggs in lock down, due to hatch 1/18. More of my Bubba's!
Canadachickens @canadachickens 1/17 3 OE's out in the hatcher , one OE, bottom right, mal posed but still trying to zip, and the other 2 OE's pretty quiet.
The rest of the eggs are test batch from a new Roo, due later this week. Bunch of barnyard mix, just for the heck of it.Update on my OE's - four little fluffy butts in the brooder, the malpoed one eventually figured it out The other two were DIS. Late quitters, looked fine other wise bakers dozen barnyard mixers from a new Auracuana roo and my Columbian rocks in the bator due later this week Sixteen more silkies will fall into the bator tomorrow.
Venymae Rooster was shooting blanks. :( 5/7 clear and the other 2 are very questionable looking. Plus the two that are questionable are the ones that won't turn. I think I'm going to try and return this Brinsea. It's just not worth the $$. It holds temp great, and looks awesome,but it's got to be perfect for how much it costs and it's not doing it for me. @venymae
Jessimom I had 6 of the 9 eggs in lock down hatch. 2 were fully grown, but dead in the shell, the 3rd died much earlier. I still have 18 silkies set to hatch on the 22nd. The 12 Salmon Faverolle eggs and 11 Cochin eggs that were shipped 3000 miles... I got them Wednesday and Thursday. About half have saddled air cells. Half have nice air cells. I added the shipped eggs to the 'bator and turned off the auto turner. I will manually tilt everything for the next day or so, then turn the auto turner back on. When I move the 18 over to lockdown, I'll be adding any eggs that @gotro17 wants me to add for her, plus more silkies.
gotro17 Shellee lavender Orpington shipped egg issue,Papa's Poultry. Jeff- you rocked it! Not one crack! Thank you!!! We have Bielefelders, Crested CL, BBs Marans and Mottled Lavender Orpingtons, along with some surprises from the rainbow pen! Can't wait!!!5 Marans eggs were cracked 👎. However, all frizzles and lavender Orpingtons were intact. Vital Farms eggs I got at Target, along with some silkies from our new friend from down the road, @Jessimom... We are setting tomorrow for a Feb. 6th hatch day.

Howfunkyisurchicken Nichole! hatching Silkies and Sizzles (2 under broodies and 2 in the incubator). how many eggs are set and when due? @howfunkyisurchicken
JennyBchickadee found 1 egg that i figured mudt have been la8d on top of the broody about a week or so after she started sitting? Well, its hatching right now!! I have an incubator from the 50s that is not very even tempered so i figured it wouldnt hatch but its halfway zipped....looks like I may end up with ONE pet chick....oh man, here we go again. The last one ended up incredibly spoiled! PICTURES? @JennyBchickadee SHE HATCHED waiting for images!
Hawk12 another batch of blue/partridge brahmas last night. Hatch day should be Feb. 4 or 5th. how many eggs in? @Hawk12
Bejammie19 bcm eggs should hatch tomorrow or Sunday, BJ HAS A PIP! 1/16
dolfi 6 on lock down. Running a test run before my eggs arrive in two weeks. Looks like I might have 100% hatch.I have 4 visible external pips, may have more that I can't see. I have only 19 eggs in there (all my ees were infertile, remember? 😢😢😢😢😢😢) so I need at least 16 babies!! Fingers crossed!!
mrleeroy Got the eggs candled last night (day 7). Had 2 quitters but 100% fertile again. The other 12 were squirmin'
deserteggs22Update on my eggs in the incubator on day 7: all 7 of the eggs have moving babies in them!!! YAY! I will do another update on day 14.
Mirajane 10 white leghorn eggs, as I've said, my dad will only eat white eggs, so I bought some white eggs for him, so I can hatch them and raise them for him. They were shipped, 5 are good, 5 have detached air cells. Sat out for a full day before being put in incubator. Also put in 11 of our eggs from...

If you need proof/ want to have a foggy clue whut this means on any of these things, ask me and I can find the post for you.
The most expensive coffee in the world is made out of kitty poop, good things only come to those who wait if they work like crazy while they are waiting, no big lottery winners here, CH caught a 60 lb blue cat all by himself behind his house and kwhites says to sell it to a resturant, country lovin's feed store has CHICKS, (she only got two...) fire370 has a pip, k is locking his doors against a turken invasion, sally has unleashed a whole pile of happy painter pics, JT's average day includes chicks in the bathtub, 2 year old running around shedding clothing, boys slinging insults at one another, and a 4 year old princess barking orders at everyone, CH lives right next door to the "Duck Dynasty" crew, Sally is googling everything for us, kwhites likes Old Bay on cats (preferably 60 pound blue ones!) but he would not recommend it on vanilla ice cream, (probably only tasted good with chocolate...) Chaos is not commenting on salad, and will only smile and nod whenever dearest sally the sleeping elephant awakes and speaks, chaos needs mommom sally's boot camp, fried baloney is only good if you are starving, there is a bowl full of helpful monkeys somwhere in here, kwhites has been laughing for 3 days straight now, and Ur can relate to a scared goldfish!
