Just finished a big candling. It is 14 days for 48 of the eggs and day 12 for 24 of them. I started with 31 shipped eggs from 3 different sources. At day 14-
Shipped egg tally-
Feathermeadow started with 13 now have 3 (25%) These travelled from Arizona.
J-Bar started with 6 now have 3 (50%) These travelled furthest from Oregon.
Alchemist Farm started with 12 now have 8 (66%) These traveled from California.
So shipped eggs 14 out of 31 remain. (45%) They are all Isbar. The ones pulled either did not develop or had blood rings.
For my own eggs -
Isbar- pulled 3, 2 no development, 1 blood ring (out of 19) (84%)
Isabelle Leghorn- pulled 1 no development (out of 12) (83%)
SFH- pulled 5 no development, (out of 10) The rooster must not be getting the job done. New rooster and new pen almost done if it doesn't rain this weekend! (50%)
Began with 72 and I now have 46 that are looking good! (64%)
Since I can't stand an empty incubator I set 22 in the empty spots and will move them all to one incubator at lockdown for the Easter hatch group.
