Locked down 7 eggs yesterday in the new coolerbator hatcher. Wish I would have had more time to tinker with it but temps are stable and humidity is sitting at 65%. We'll see how it does. Due to hatch 2/25.
The other 32 are due 3/3.
Good luck!!!

Somewhere in there, one BCM chick passed away and I had to begin a valiant effort to save 5 more showing symptoms. So far, so good.

With all hatched chicks doing great, one "customer" who had bought a Greenfire extra Bielefelder, put it outside in his coop (in a box with a lamp) and it died 😳.🐣👎... He seemed confused as to how that could have happened. Oy.

I'm sorry I have not been able to post- it's so hard to catch up and reply anything relevant with a T minus 3 hour delayed start (plus work, kids...and, oh yeah- animals!). I've ordered all my eggs for the HAL- but, I might have to set a little early on the 5th...@Sally Sunshine, am I "allowed" to set when you all do and pretend I'm an East Coaster? We are leaving to go out of town that morning.

Lastly, I have 18 in my bator on day 15. For _____s and giggles, @Jessimom have me some silkie eggs she was to scramble for the flock, along with 6 Buff Brahma eggs she had leftover. Talk about a size difference!!! Being so green, I figured I could use the practice, and set them the day my last one left the incubator (after cleaning, of course!). I've had trouble with humidity but took some pics of air cells...and some strange looking freak show going on in the brahma egg. Here are the photos:





@TJChickens- while we did find the mountain lion photos amazing, I am so sorry for what's going on down there. I hope you're having better luck!

I'm sure after writing this lengthy post I lost footing on being "caught up"... Getting my coffee- be right back!


I think you can set up to a day early or a day late and still get included in the HAL.........but don't quote me on that.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

it was up and down. it was really hard to keep the temp consistent. it ranged from 95 to 111 but not for very long for either i've been keeping a log book and the longest they've been left alone is from 1am to 7am leaving it at a reasonable temp when i went to bed.

They're good! The little one finally suckled a bottle last night instead of chewing the nipple. And he finished all three yesterday, instead of only half. It only too a week! hmm.png He will only take a bottle from my lap; being a boer/nubian cross I see no problems with this in the future. gig.gif

Set when you can!!!  you can still join, two day leeway for us to add your eggs in the hatch count number thats all!  no big deal for that!

Did it teach you not to try and do something dumb?
