awesome!!! keep us updated as she grows!!
Im going to put all my eggs in my new incubator tomorrow!!!!
I ended up buying 7 Blue Partridge Brahma Eggs from one of you BYC'ers. And I saved 10 Black Copper and Blue Copper Marans eggs from my flock, and 4 Ohiki Bantam eggs from my breeding pair. These numbers of eggs might change depending on if I get any more eggs that are worth saving tomorrow.
There are my brahma eggs.
AWESOME!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!

@Sally Sunshine we ended up actually taping two of the six holes closed-too much cool air. Hubs cut them with a hole saw and then cut the portion of the top of the cooler out and replaced it with an old 8X10 glass. Took about four days to get the set-up just right as far as temp and humidity. The funny thing is that he told me I couldn't spend any more money on chickens but then he made me the incubator.
ahhhhhhh so your saying your lucky you got it made!!!! lol I am happy to see the reuse!!
So do you call him Stormy? Or Alfie??
I quite literally watched that episode yesterday before work!
"Not Mum?? Is that what he calls me?!"
NOT MUM lol
Blooie gifted me her svart hona egg prize from the Easter food contest. The breeder who donated them's hen went broody so they weren't able to send them yet. Since I'm new to hatching I've been thinking of getting some cheapo hatching eggs on eBay to practice and to test the incubator so I don't wreck the fancy eggs. I'll see how that goes. I think the incubator is ready but I'm also still trying to figure if it'll be worth it to buy or make an egg turner.
Sounds like a plan to me. And it doesn't sound like your excitement has diminished any either!
oh gooodie!!!! @Blooie I will get on that box of eggs your requested, you certain you want four plus dozen?????
No problem about those 4 dozen eggs, Sally...I'll take 'em. I've got room in my coop for 2 more chicks, and with my current track record that's all I'll end up with. <sigh>
oh my Blooie!!! yes bang yer head but get over it and get that record changed STAT! what went wrong???
