rlhagan56 Hello, hope I can join in here. I started incubating my first batch of 21 eggs 4 days ago. 9 of them are shipped eggs and wouldn't ya know it, our electricity has gone off twice now and a blizzard hit after weeks of 60 degree weather. I kept a quilt over the incubator and it only lost heat down to 84.9 degrees and the humidity climbed to 65 each time. I just couldn't believe what happened! I have the 9 Ameraucana eggs, then my own EE, BLRW, and Silkie eggs. All pullets so just an experiment.
justkat59 Hatched out 10 out of 16 shipped BCM. This is my second hatch this year. Also have 6 Pekin Ducks in the bator now due to hatch 3/18. Then putting in some leghorns after that. I also have a broody RIR that has set up her best in the Ducks house. Hatching is addicting.
shellikirbey 7 new baby's out of 10 eggs..one looked like never turned and one did get in air cell but never pipped shell and the other looked liked only half grew..I had to help one cause it was Peck at top and made big hole at top but never finished zipping and was drying on bottom so I took finger in warm water and applied to dry spot until it come loose and it came out in my hand and I put back in incubator for awhile and he layed on side longer than others did but he is up and eating now.
Torch404 I set 6 eggs, brabanters, a couple days ago. Going to candle tonight and see if I have veins. I'm going to be adding six eggs a week a part and try for a staggered hatch. Excited!!!
billiejw89 3/7 21 of our eggs are still looking great! I'm fixing to order some serama bantam eggs from MPC, my son has been wanting some badly!
politicalcenter We got 13 chicks total and a couple of duds. We have about 40 in the bator this time.
They are silver lace Wyondots (sp) and Buff Orpington. We also have a couple of Australorp. We just gathered the eggs and put them in
henhoneygirl I just love how perfect this hatch has gone!! Everyone that's pipped so far has hatched and I haven't had to help ANYONE!!! Even the chick that pipped on the wrong end did it all by himself! This is just awesome, I'm so happy right now!! I've learned so much since my very first time hatching and this just feels like the big culmination of everything I've learned. YIPPEE!!!!
Cochix aka Tricia 3 doz BBS Amereaucana's 1 doz mixed eggs - should produce EE and OE. 9:20 am -3/12 48 eggs loaded in bators, Lockdown today, having a bad run and only 13 into lockdown out of 46. Had incubator spike early. Pretty disheartening, not sure how or if any will hatch as 6 Of those I cant even see into, they are OE and Wellies.
stryker 3 chicks hatched out of 15 eggs that went into lockdown!!! Two are roosters and one came out with two messed up legs. Think something is wrong with the joints. So out of the three I have two roosters... The way it is looking I might have go go the store to buy chicks to replace my older hens for this year...
Tao Chick Currently incubating 15 Cream Brabanter. Last hatch 1 Brabanter and 5 Pavlovskaya.
ruthannnall 3/17 22 magpie and mallard eggs into the incubator. Can't wait til day 28.
Laurel Meadows set 12 of my Marans due to hatch 4/1, and set 9 shipped Lavender & black split lav Bantam Cochins and 5 more of my Marans this week. They should hatch 4/5.
prizepeteOk Guys, I set 9 Eggs yesterday, 3/17
HiddenFlockEC 3/18 Just set my first eggs, 12 Ameraucana and 6 of my mixed flock. Could be Buff Orpington/Rock, Orpington/Silver Laced Wyandotte, or Buff Orpington
deserteggs22 Last night I candled my eggs on day 14, and the 10 under mama are all doing perfect and I can see movement in all of them! And as for the 7 in my incubator, the 6 shipped ones have bad saddle air sack, but other than that, I can see veins and movement in all of them! Oh, and my one other egg in there is doing just fine!
LittleLakePhil 3/19 I set a dozen Khaki Campbell eggs.
Coreenelane 3/28/ On day 15 but think I lost alot of eggs to fluctuation of temp. What is the best/easiest controlled heating supply for incubators? I need one and have no idea what or where to get one.
lizzy14 I just put 27 eggs in our incubator!! This is only our second hatch and we made modifications to the incubator - added a fan this year.
imlovinmyskin Kathy On day 22 of hatch #2 of welsummer eggs. Started with 23, had 8 viable eggs at lockdown. Had 3 moving at candle on day 21 but as of this am (now day 22) still no pips. I think my humidity was too high, air cells seem small On day 11 of hatch #3 due 4/8.. Started candeling on day 10 to hopefully get a handle on my humidity issue. Hatch 3 has 14 welsummer eggs in turner. Hatch 3 is neighors hatch with a different Roo. Wondering if my Roo has a genetic disorder since first hatch was a complete dud..and it looks like 2nd hatch might be too. 4th hatch (due 4/18) went in Turner yesterday ... Will candle in day 7 to chk air cell and make necessary adjustments I will have a successful hatch!!

@Sally Sunshine I ended up with 12 chicks from the 16 that made it to lockdown.
I will be setting again tomorrow evening or Friday, depends on the condition my eggs arrive in because my post office didn't hold them for pick up! I'm so mad! Wahhhhhhhhhhh
Okay, I thought you had 2 incubators that you just used. Why not fire one of those up? I fear you will likely lose this baby chick.
With broodies you should always have a bator on standby in case she quits. Hopefully this is a lesson learned for you.
