I Would have had 5 baby chicks but one died before it internally Pip.
Dead in shell

Dead in Shell...  sorry you lost one.  I don't think the round egg has anything to do with it though... 

 

Anybody else have issues with really round eggs?

Ooooh, I did a couple of quail hatches.  They are the absolute coolest to watch zip!  So fast!!  I was going to raise quail, but changed my mine.  Those were fun hatches though.  Good luck!

Im looking forward to seeing your pics 🙂Glad your babies are looking good too!! Hopefully the last 3 will make their appearance soon fl.gif
That's good to hear! Thanks for the encouragement 😀 So far that egg hasn't enlarged the pip and no others are pipped yet on day 19.
fl.gif for your silkies. Are these shipped eggs?
Lol wow that's quite an upscale broody nest you have going there!! 😄
I had a tough time leaving my broody's eggs alone too but I didn't candle them at all (and I like to candle!) She hatched 5 of the 6 and was a first timer.

My broody last summer had zero interest in treats, this one would jump off those eggs in a split second when she heard the rooster calling the hens to the goodies 😄
Yes all my eggs are shipped. I haven't found anyone local that has the eggs I want. sad.png

Jennifer, I just wanted to say how how happy I am for you that your hatches so far have gone well!  I've been following your posts and while I'm super confused about what you've got cooking (or even how many incubators you have at this point lol) your enthusiasm comes through in every post.

She picks the corn out of the cooked stuff and eats the fresh greens.  Most everything else she leaves alone, but she is eating and at some point yesterday she got off her nest long enough have the most disgusting poop ever. I wish I had been home as I could have seen how many eggs she has!

 

I got this hen as part of a little flock of five ($3/hen and a free rooster) at a poultry swap a few months ago.  Other than losing one hen to egg binding within a couple of weeks they are healthy, happy birds with modest appetites and terrific egg production.  The rooster is one of my favorite birds.  She can hatch as many babies as she likes.  She has one from each remaining hen and possibly a couple more of her own if she continued to lay for a day or two after going broody.

Lmao I have so many different types of eggs. We have a mixed flock and I want to have a few of everything until I figure out what breeds I like best. smile.png so far my favorite are my polish and Ameracaunas. I just love their personalities. I also have ducks. Rouens and swedish. Love them. Right now in my incubators I have ancona ducks,gold and silver laced polish bantams, lf cochins,welsummers and jubilee orpingtons lol. I have more jubilee and Ameracaunas on the way. Those will be my last for this year though. smile.png I have most definitely fallen in love with all this. Hatching is amazing. I feel like I've found my calling lol. smile.png
