Okay all made an awesome discovery and wondering on if I should or not discovered that the last spot by the turner motor has a removable cover... Now to put an egg there or not to put an egg there is the question.. I know I should have known that but the most eggs I've ever incubated at a time was 21. So my question is should I put an egg there and if I do how often would I need to switch it out with a different egg to keep it from overheating?
Got my eggs today from mypetchicken. Thank you again MPC for your generosity in providing past present and hopefully future prizes for contests. I got four EE, two bcm, and an OE from them and I am in love! I never realized how beautiful olive eggs are and I did need some chocolate eggs in my basket. Hope they all hatch and are all pullets!!!
and thank you for the extra! Best trick or treat I ever got
Tomorrow DH2B and I will be sorting through and setting all the best eggs we've saved from our own flock as well as the shipped eggs from MPC can't wait! We're also playing around with the egg shape sexing as in the thread on BYC. It seems pretty cool and may help up the pullet vs cockeral ratio a little.
We will give final numbers after setting tomorrow but right now we're planning on setting the MPC eggs, slw, slw/EE mixes, slw/buff Orpington mixes, silkies and a couple slw/Isa brown mixes BC DH2B thinks we're going to invent a new amazing layer and make millions
yep and he "doesn't really" like the birds... Well mostly the bantams he thinks they're worthless and doesn't see what I see in them.
