Canadachickens aka cc Updated 18 Auracana day seven candle, 14 excellent development 4 questionable Due date is the 29th. Sorta shipped, I picked them up about 2 hours from home.
mrleeroy Locked down 7 eggs yesterday in the new coolerbator hatcher. 2/22 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.
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 aka Lacie 33 Bielefelder eggs set 8:00 pm on 2/12, I candled my Bieles. Out of 33 I saw 15 for sure having veins, 4 possible clears, and the other 11 I couldn't tell if they had veins or not. 2 of the ones with veins are the cracked ones I repaired with nail polish and superglue.
From Chicken Hill Poultry: Out of 12 eggs I have 2 clears and 10 veining.
From @Papa Brooder
: Out of 21 eggs I have 1 Clear, 3 Maybes, and 17 veining!!!! So I have 27/33 developing!!! Hooray for good packing and handling!!! 2/19
TJ Only one of the Guinea eggs was fertile and it's developing in the mind reader bator (what am I going to do with one Guinea?!) along with 2 Serama eggs from my silkied Seramas and Tobin's one porcelain d'Uccle egg.In the R-com are 13 shipped Serama eggs from two sources.
LocalYokel aka Yokel 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. 7 RIR 2 out of 3 eggs under broody bator are alive/developing, 1 RIR 1 Leghorn, tossed the other.
4 out of 5 Leghorn in bator showing veins! I have 5 White Leghorns in the bator right now Due the 25th
Venymae possibly fried her eggs at 113 degrees!! OH MY
gotro17 aka Shellee I can't sleep and just candled my eggs... What can I say? I'm at day 16.9999. About 1/4 of the eggs' AC haven't budged since Monday. Temps are a steady 100 and humidity has been finally stabilized at 38%. All babies are still kickin'! This is an important hatch- I am basically a surrogate for new best Crazy Chicken Lady friend, @Jessimom, and her Remaining Buff Brahma eggs. She has had such a disaster with her "DeathBator"! When I set these, I don't think either of us planned on her hatches she had going (that filled her bators) would turn out so sad. I really want these 6 to make it, along with our 12 silkies left! She needs chicks!!!
Hawk12 aka Kristie none of my last batch made I. I'm trying to pretend it never happened. I had the temp set too low and humidity too high. It was rough 😢 My current batch should hatch this Saturday. I have 9 that are still kicking. They are brahmas again. Trying to get a big enough breeding stock. Right now I don't have a rooster and there will be no breeding without one I'm halfway into day 21 and no pips. There is movement by some of the eggs when I shine a light on them though. I've done everything right this time around so I'm a little concerned why I haven't any pips??
deserteggs227 eggs in lockdown all 7 still kicking 2/17 It's the morning of day 21 here,2/21 and all 4 of my Barnaul eggs are pipping. And my huge double yolker's air sack looks kinda funky. Is that normal?
Peachickie aka Nicole New bator is holding steady temps 9 of 11 for this weekends hatch. No hatching by me next weekend but my lil broody silkie is due the 28th or so. Hens have been kicking into high gear this last week. I set 100 eggs 2/20, gotta test out the capacity on the new bator
Auroradream26 aka Jess 30 turkey eggs in lockdown now.
ambe0487 2/1 I put the eggs in lockdown this morning because I will be busy getting ready for the snow storm that is suppose to hit over night here, day 18 actually starts at 3 p.m. 29 eggs, which comprise of 6 Isa brown/Legbar mix, 9 EE/ Bresse mix, and 14 Buff Orp. @ambe0487
Fire Ant Farm aka Kristin
slordaz barnyard mix, now RIR is matured too we are gonna play guess whose the daddy game as both roosters were on all of the hens, patiently trying to get spring here faster so can build the new coopsat 23 eggs at 2 am this morning 2/3 Lockdown is Wed Feb 10th (before bed) 6 are questionable 1 clear
19 looking good @slordaz
How did everything turn out? got an update?
S5apiotrowski aka Anastasia aka AC 13/18 BCM Hatched. 1 non-pipper, 1 early quitter, 3 died after pipping (humidity too high, eggs rolled by other chicks, I think the drowned) 2/3 Welsummers Hatched. One still alive/working on it, has plenty of air, but breathing looks difficult. Don't think it will make it. 1/2 Easter Eggers hatched. 1 was a clear. 1/5 mixed breeds hatched. 3 clear. 1 died in shell - mal-positioned and pip didn't break through internal membrane.
Chicken Hawk33 aka CH aka Seth setting a goose egg 2/16 we have a goose embryo.day four and we have a.heart.2/20

campinghaws aka campin aka Sharon All honas! my hatch is complete. 7 hatched of 9.
Tao Chick 7 Brabanter, 5 Pavlovskaya, and three from my pullets due2/26. 2/21 Candled eggs today day 16. 10/11 of the shipped eggs look great. One questionable. My two BCM eggs are still too dark to figure out. Locked down. Temp stable but therms are wrong. Hygrometers are reading 60 and 70%.Can't wait for Friday. They lost 15% of weight. I didn't mark air cells. One looked too big. One looked too small. The rest were good. I have 12 eggs in lockdown. One was clear. One was early loss. One was late loss. I have 12 in lockdown day 20 today. I heard peeping when I refilled the bottom wells of the bator. I'm trying not to stare.

Out of the 7 eggs that made it to lock down all 4 Rhodebars hatched (2 female/2 male) and 3 barnyard mix that havent pipped yet will give them a few days.
also set 13 more Rhodebars amd I think 7 other eggs today for a 3/12 hatch.
butterfliesdoku aka Vanessa have 46 eggs in the incubator right now, they are barnyard mixes and Easter Eggers with a due date of February 24th. Ok so day 16 and I have 30 eggs showing veins out of 46 originally set due to hatch the 24th. Two of those aren't showing movement but because they still have very clear noticeable veins I'm going to say they are good to go
sarah25bear aka Sarah So last night I started 41 eggs in my incubator this is my first time doing this so hopefully things go well they are just farm chicks my hens are Rhode Island Red and barred rocks and my rooster is a partridge Cochin ... So here goes!!! @sarah25bear

CyndiD I have10 WH duck eggs being shipped to me next week. Is there a site I can read that will help me prepare the eggs for incubating?
I have not received my SWH eggs yet!! tomorrow or the next day???
I will be setting SWH duck eggs and Pekin duck eggs.... AND Australorp over LH, WCBP and NH chicken eggs.
My SWH duck eggs should be here tomorrow and I will have to set them 1 week early for HAL, oops, ordered them 1 week too early...
TrilliumAcres Thanks to your answers a few day ago and all the very valuable info that Sally Sunshine has put together I have 5 babies in the incubator with 2 eggs to go. First pip yesterday morning and first chick at around 6 pm last night. I woke up to 3 more chicks this morning and one more just hatched a few minutes ago. This is my first chick hatch ever and I am so excited! So THANK YOU ALL! Your wisdom is greatly appreciated! @TrilliumAcres
how did hatch go?
Meaghan Just put two duck eggs in the incubator this morning 2/15. First time experimental hatch! I set literally 10 or so breeds/mixed breeds. I got eggs from friends and my girls. There are 50 eggs total.
Math I incubate with the LG 9200.I set backyard mixed chicken eggs on Monday, February 15th for friends of ours. I set an incubator full. I think it was 68. Our friends need to replace brown egg layers.
bauerdog aka Joanne The bator is all cleaned out and waiting for the next batch. For shipped eggs, should I ask for them to be shipped on Monday the 29th for setting on Saturday the 5th? It takes 2 to 3 days for the eggs to get to my place....just worried if I ask for wednesday, they may be held up by the good ole USPS
DON956 Just set 48 eggs at 12pm central time. 2/19
12 RIR 12 Delaware 12 Plymouth Barred Rock 12 Golden Sex Link Due on the 11th of March, anyone else set eggs today?
Chicknlvn . so it's my first time incubating. Today is day 7 so this morning I candled all my eggs (36 total), marked air cells and pulled blood ring/cracked eggs. Now for some reason I can't get my humidty to stabilize.... it's up to 38 and I can't get it to come down and stay down.
billiejw89 lockdown 2/22 Buff Orpingtons. We set 12 eggs. 5 turned out to be clear, the other 7 looked good. I was hoping for a better fertility rate...3 pips last night! 2 hatched early morning, one zipping now. One egg still no pip. 2/25
kissofcrimson 2/23 Sadly the black Silkie didn't make it that I tried to help but the paint is doing fine. I hatched out 2 white silkies and a splash Ameraucana. My first ever hatch is doing great so far. 30 more eggs to go lol
Akrnaf2 aka Benny Sal. Count me in! Theis is my second setting! 4 Rumples Aracauna 5 BPR 3 PPR This time I am hopping for an higer percentage, of sucsseful hatches!
Chaos18 Nothing currently in the bator but I have 16 Dom eggs shipping out on the 29th and will be picking up 16-24 (Silver Pencil Rock and Partridge Rock) eggs on the 4th.
Roada Red I have 14 of my flocks eggs in the incubator today is day 8 and they are starting to form and they are mixed with my EE rooster and americauna hen that is also mixed with barred rock salmon faverole and silver penciled rock
NaJoBeLe aka Nathan As far as status goes I plan to let my shipped eggs sit and recandle tonight. Will prbly try to set them this weekend. Need to clean out the bator and do some tweaking but should have a chance to get it ready by sat/sun. Plan at this point is to set the 12 Partridge Rock eggs I had shipped and do a staggered hatch with my Partridge Rock mixes for the HAL. First time with a staggered hatch so we will see how it goes. Should work out ok since I have the loose air cells I plan to use a egg carton and will use the auto turner for my eggs.
Thank you! yes this afternoon will be the beginning of day 22. I am quite pleased with my first hatch. So far all but one of the fertile eggs have hatched! I'll get pictures soon.
