Thanks for everyones guidance. I'Ve learned a lot and will try this again.

I am sorry, :hugsdo you think you can try to get a thermostat to install in that thing if your temps vary that much in the house? or do you have a more stable room in the house?  any way I can help you get set up for next run?  @ambe0487

Me: CCL Serama: never set them together, I did because serama hen found with eggs, due around 20th give or take :hide in a regular coolerbator just for fun with kiddos

 

cgbond Splash Blue laced red Wyandotte own eggs ~ first time I have tried to incubate in a long time. styro incubator Little Giant incubator from Tractor Supply with automatic turner. (waiting on some eggs from a friend. She's sending me some Cream Legbar and some Black copper Marans) Current chickens include;  Splash blue laced red Wyandotte, Barred Rock, white rock, golden buff, RIR.

 

kwhites634  No incubating 'til Spring, & then only if nobody's broody

 

Saris  DUE Nov 12th mixes, some will lay brown, some will lay olive LOCKDOWN 11/8 

 

slrose24  cream legbar eggs shipped, made her own homemade turners

Cynthia12  :oldSilkie/frizzles due on the 20th..and, a mystery egg. 20th..right on my birthday. :yesss:larger brown egg surprise for her birthday perhaps????

 

RavynFallen  :oldCall duck eggs happened to fall in and FILL up her bator, so they'll be due on Thanksgiving Day

 

chicken hawk 33   26 chicken eggs in it both production reds and white leg due 21st

 

firedragon1982  12 sent to me, took 2 sappy ones out...one was cracked - Day 7 was on 11/3 ????????????  hubs is in charge of bator yet???   Well... got 12 more eggs today.   Also ordered a second incubator for a hatcher since we will be having a staggered hatch. But on a side note I am glad we got another dozen, candled real quick when I added some water last night (day 10) and 3 of the 6 that had started quit :hit Still frustrated that half of the first dozen were clear at the 7 day candle. I know these eggs had a rough ride because of the detached air cells. But still. I wanted a good hatch :(  So batch #1 will be due 11/17 :fl  Batch #2 will be due 11/28.  And I may or may not have a 3rd dozen coming to me too...

 

hippiestink  I'm not hatching anytime soon but I'm mostly here for tips on using incubators and broodies

lazy gardener  No hatching here for me until March or April

 

PhoredaBurds  :oldSubscribing tho not incubating right now. It's getting tough to resist tho

 

Mims  Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance I have never incubated eggs before, but I have been researching like crazy for the last several months. Texas, and I currently have 17 chickens. RIR, RIW, Leghorn, Orps, Silkie, Australorp, BCM roo, etc. My first and main flock was killed about a month ago, so I am working on rebuilding it.  I'm going to set quail eggs

 

 

Bejammie  24 eggs and counting, starting the incubation 11/3 I am excited and scared, lol. I have white leghorn eggs, bcm eggs and some mixed breed eggs. 28 eggs in the bator.....im aiming for 20 hatched  NOTE(had a temp spike overnight, DAY 2 up to 105 but I got it cooled back down)

 

RobJones 11/6   Kabir eggs on day 20 12 eggs in there that are not due to hatch for 24 hours but 4 are piped and I can hear them peeping this is great, I love it..

 

nuklee0  Woke up to a broken door on one of our smaller coops that housed 4 silkies. Turns out a bear got 3 of the 4. info on staggered hatches? I started my 2nd hatch about 6 days ago.   due on the 17th and 19th/20th because I staggered.8 silkies and 2 cross breeds... Dad is an Ameraucana/Cochin and 1 mom is a Black australorp and the other mom is probably a production Rhode Island Red..

 

UrbanFarmOC  Subscribing to learn more! Am still fairly new to chickens

 

RubyNala97  Just marking a spot here. I've been reading through the thread and I WAS doing so good without hatching and having NO withdrawals...but now I have the itch!!! I wish I could hatch for someone else! She is going to become the worlds professional hatcher for hire, I DUB her "RubyNALA's Eggs to Chirps" at your Service!

 

venymae  6 legbars, 10 blue egger mixes, and 10 serama shipped tried to candle some, but was NOT feeling confident so I have decided to leave them, settled, first time doing shipped eggs.

ccrane11  few eggs from my own flock.  I have Rhode Island Red, Rhode Island White, Golden Sex Link, and New Hampshire Red girls.  They are bred by a Rhode Island Red or a Silver Lackenvelder rooster.

 

BG2heum  New to BYC and incubation had questions
 

mymilliefleur  Hey all, joining in here. I'm not currently incubating anything, but I always enjoy learning more about incubation.

 

ambe0487  New to incubating and i am on day 18 we are in lockdown!!! I have 5 eggs of 2 silkies, 1 silkie/cochin mix, 1 maran cross, and a light brown surprise egg. I'm using a FarmInnovator incubator with current readings at 64% humidity and 100degrees. I have a spinge with water and a wet rag in the bator to keep humidity up. 11/3  ps... she talks to her eggs like some other hatchers do... I have caught my temps dropping in the evening over the last 4 nights. I'm sure it's happened during day 1-17 as well.  11/7 One internal pip & two un-pipped.

 

lazyacre  Cynthia12 invited me over to this tread. I'm pretty new to chickens. This will be only my second time incubating won 12 Bielefelder eggs on eBay today.

 

Peep-Chicken all 7 eggs from MyPetChicken are viable and will hatch Tuesday (11/10)  4 Carolina blue sex link EEs, 1 barred Olive Egger, 1 Ameri-Flower and 1 super blue egg layer.

 

holm25  I'll join!! I wont be hatching till spring since it gets to cold here in minnesota but will chat and help when I can

 

chickendreams24  I'm just dieing to set eggs guys.I will be back at it in the spring

 

ozexpat  :old

 

Rod-T   famous for  "Now now. Can't we all just hatch along" :hugs

 

mak1 

 

JandTRanch 2 bators running for hatches due 11/20 and 11/22 with a total of 14 eggs set. I got a great deal on a Brinsea mini for $25 bucks and it is at full capacity with 8 shipped black copper Marans eggs and the hygrometer. I am hoping for some quality breeding stock out of this hatch to add to my existing blue copper breeding prospects. We really also wanted to hatch some from our existing mixed flock too- so I was able to talk my husband into letting me get a Hovabator on sale :-) and each family member chose a hen we wanted a baby from. So we have 6 in there. They are all covered by our silver laced Wyandotte rooster. So there's a slw egg, 2 barred rocks eggs (Chicks should be black sex-links), 2 Easter eggers eggers, and a black sex link's egg.

Chipper Chicken  I'm new to incubating too, but probably won't do any until next year, I'm trying to read and learn all I can in advance.

 

Flockmama87 I'm on day 7! (11/7) First time with shipped Marans eggs  off eBay and at day 7 candling 11/12 are alive and growing strong, 1 died early, no veins, clearish with an incomplete blood ring, I left it in just in case, my last 2 hatches I had moments of oops I thought you were dead....sorry you are now.... I'm trying to avoid that this time. So I'm leaving everyone in until lockdown unless someone starts oozing or weeping.....I need the next 14 days to go by quickly, I wanna see little fuzzy butts!

 

Bernadine503 thermometer questions

 

Hawk12  Hatch day is the 19th.I am incubating shipped eggs that are on day 8. (11/7) I just candled them and marked the air cells and I have some that are saddle shaped but attached and some that are normal shaped but not completely attached. Is there still hope for the babies? They are alive at this point I am incubating blue and gold partridge brahmas, chocolate and molted/spangled orpingtons, dbl laced barnevelder (only 1 left out of 6) and 1 maline.  I received eggs from 3 different sellers.  I have incubated before but only about 4 times.  I have ordered eggs on 3 of those and have yet to have a successful hatch on shipped eggs.  I am determined to hatch shipped eggs but I have to admit it gets discouraging.  I had a great hatch when I incubated my own eggs, nearly 100%. My incubator is a still air Styrofoam with an automatic egg turner.  I have read through the Hatching 101 article, it is full of great information. The babies on my previous attempts with shipped eggs all made it to lockdown but then never hatched.

 

Bubbles12345  I'm interested in building an incubator, see post post #657 of 734 and  CABINET COOLER INCUBATOR ~ CoolerBATOR ~

Question:

What would cause a hen to suddenly lay an egg much darker than ever before? Same feed, same everything since I got these hens as pullets last Spring. Could it somehow be related to shorter daylight hours?

I would think so too. My Wellie lays eggs of many shades and speckles. It is pretty random.
