 I think this is the Araucana.  



And not for the faint of heart, the turkey hen that survived a raccoon attack.



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

They look great! And wow on the turkey!

If that black shows any yellow on the foot pads, definitely Araucana... but not all my Ar's are properly yellow skinned, ugh...

I still swear some of those are blues... I think the 'unsures' should just be stuck in your mix... hmm.png

@WalnutHill

So I was reading your info on sticky chicks caused by too high humidity in the lockdown stage. I agreed with your findings, compared w my own, and decided I Had to try something new. U know where I am and what my areas like, plus I had the experience of hatching the BCM without water added... I added no water at this hatch. I'm nervous as heck, and this won't become protocol for some time but I have two hatchers now who r dry within an hour plus 14 pips that aren't turning yellow... Humidity Currently reading at 57%

@RavynFallen

I would really appreciate u guys weighing in, u know how I get. Wanna do suma this he.gif and alota hair pulling out...

Turk, don't worry... read next post... smile.png

So, I neglected the Araucana pen a bit when the Ahole was still in residence so half the hens went broody on staggered eggs... when they started hatching, we found out we had some homicidal broodys... ugh...

I wanted to scrap the eggs and restart, but OH pitched a fit... so he stuck all the 'close to done' eggs in the bottom tray of the Leahy... no water in it, and not really sure what the humidity in it is, but it's pretty dry... for the last week a couple times a day I open it to turn my other eggs and find a chick hatched in that bottom tray... luckily, our really good Am is broody so she has been getting these little buggers as they hatch...

Anyways, Turk, they are pipping, zipping and popping out with absolutely no issues whatsoever... I went with a full out no help, what happens happens attitude and she has a lot of chicks now... not sure exactly how many, but I think around 20...

Take this for what it's worth, but I hope it eases your mind a bit... smile.png

Thanks, love!  I am super stoked!!  Only downside is that I'll have to pay for the travel and then get reimbursed.  I have to go to NH for 3 days during my first full week of work (5/23, I start on 5/18) and then Elkhart IN 2 weeks later.  Kinda tricky when we haven't had money coming in.
