Sally great hatch, waiting on  serama //// eggs from sara and martha set 1/24  day 7 legbar, projects, marans, Lemon Cuckoo orphingtons, tolbunt polish, and some mix silkies
NestingHillsSC 14 eggs in the hatcher yesterday2/4. I have another 18 I have to stagger in tomorrow morning. Wheaten Ameraucanas and BCMs. Probably Barred Rocks, Buff Brahmas, Heritage Reds and Sex links. LOL
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. 
Saris My hatch is done 6 DIS 24 chicks outonly had to help one out of the shell when it got stuck zipping. Hooray!
TJ The original two surviving Serama eggs from the shipped mushy mess have bit the dust. From the newer shipped mess there are two still developing. They do have horrible saddle cells, so not a lot of hope for them either. My purple Guineas have just started laying and people are wanting chicks, so.....Pulling out the Mind Reading Bator this weekend!
Casportsponyday 34 for the Muscovy eggs and it looks like I have one external pip, two internals. One of the eggs have a huge "bruise" at the bottom of the shell, so I doubt it's still alive.
13 Dominicker
5 Leghorn, may be White or Brown, mostly Whites in that coop.(Not the cheery oldish dude Whites)
Hope the Doms and Leghorns are fertile.
Canadachickens  Barnyard mix yeilded 8 fluffy butts out of 13  day 11 candle of silkies - 4 viable, 10 duds, 2 blood rings
Venymae    @venymae
got an update? hope your ok!  Salmon Favorelles and 11 shipped Cochin eggs on 1/15.  On day 8, only 4 of the Favorelles looked good, but 8 of the Cochins did -- I left them all in the 'bator.   I added 10 of my own silkies on 1/23. 
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.  29 eggs go into lockdown tomorrow!!! Start honing your master Jedi skills of distraction and calm.

Hawk12 have 7 blue/gold partridge brahma chicks in the incubator on day 15. Candled last night and things look pretty good. Air cells might be a little small. I lost 5 from this hatch due to a temp spike on day 3 sad.png I emailed the gal I bought them from to let her know my progress and she sent me a dozen more for the cost of shipping. That was very sweet of her to do knowing it wasn't her fault or even the PO but my faulty incubator. I'll be setting those eggs tomorrowDay 15, 7 eggs.
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. @deserteggs22

Fire Ant Farm I set 16 Cream Legbar eggs yesterday afternoon. Looks like the shipped eggs (Alohas with some Naked Necks in the mix) will come next week, so the tandem hatches will be a week apart. (Brinsea Octagon), and the second one will be set up tonight (R-Com 20). Cream Legbars lock down on February 7. Aloha NNs lock down on February 16 (at least any that make it to lock down). Gently turning those three times a day now.

HeatherMarieRUpdate on Muscovy hatch: One has been internally pipped for 48+ hrs. I made a safety hole right above its bill yesterday afternoon. 3 are for sure DIS. One was trying to pip internally yesterday. I'll have to check on that one when I get back home. Two more are still hanging on with no internal pip. One egg from my Muscovy hen went into lockdown yesterday. Hopefully it will pip soon.

NTBugtraq 1/30 50 eggs into each tray this time, achieving the Brinsea Ova Easy 100 suggested limit. These eggs come from my own layers, who are first generation offspring of pure Black Copper Marans Roosters mated with a dual purpose bird resembling a Red Sexlink. These birds are inbreeds, as they are mating with their own fathers. The oldest layer is ~34 weeks old, the youngest only 24 weeks.

Possible Lavenders I this time  as my Lavender Orpington pullets started laying four weeks ago.
howfunkyisurchicken I have 7 more eggs due to hatch tomorrow 2/2 silkies
bauerdog Shipped eggs AND refrigerated fertile grocery eggs. 14 day candle complete. Removed one clear and 4 quitters out of the dozen refrigerated fertile grocery eggs and 11 remaining shipped eggs that the post office handled badly. So 18 embryos out of 23 set for my first ever incubator hatch!
campinshaws 9! All honas! Due the 24th
billiejw8912 Buff orpington eggs set 2/3
Tao Chick 7 Brabanter, 5 Pavlovskaya, and three from my pullets due2/26
mrleeroyset more eggs. 8 due to hatch on 2/25. Hatching the blue ones this time

Did my candle, 2 blood rings (confirmed by cracking) and one with veins and another with a moving black dot. The rest were all pretty clear, no obvious veining, but nothing saying they were not alive. Down to 13, 8 BSL and 5 EE.

The one with the blood ring I had accidentally put upside down, it was a very round egg. BUT, when I cracked it, I could see eyes on the embryo! Sad, but very cool. The other blood ring was just a ring and no baby. Sorry, I didn't get pics of the dead ones. On another EE, there was a light ring ish thing, but I left it as I was not sure that it was not veins.
The one with definite veining is a EE, the mover is a BSL.

Does it look full term? Sorry about the gross picture.

no its not quite feathered is it?
