Finally i can get started on my 2nd incubation. Its been too cold by our standards, thatswhy i waited this long.
My 1st incubation was ok. 48 eggs giving by some friends. 18 werent fertil. of the remaining 30, 8 developed but didnt hatch.
22 hatched, but one didnt get out of the eggshell.Another got his litlte head in a space and was stomped. The 3rd one had leg problems and i had to cull him.
So the 19 are good. One has broken or deformed fingers. Maybe the wires mat. But in all ,they are big.
So this time im using my own eggs. Not sure how many are fertile, but doesnt matter. I dont have a decent breed. Its just to get things working again.
My plan is next month to get Pure breeds.
So yesterday i saved 5. Today was 7. So my 1st doxen is saved.
My target start would be 14 or 15 this month.
