I'm with you! I just set 12 under my broody last night so today is day 1 for me. What did you set this time and what are your other ones that you mentioned? I set 6 LF Lemon Blue Cochins and 6 breeders choice banty Cochins.
Yay they are already starting to get feathers on their wings I will need to take a closer look. I can't believe how fast that happens! I wish the fluffball stage lasted a little longer!
So far 12 of 16 eggs I have in Lock Down have hatched. 5 Easter Egger, 4 Backyard mix, and 3 Blue/Buff Cochin. Backyard mix is EE roo with either RIR, BR, BO, LO or Black Cochin hens. Fun stuff!!
I also have 5 shipped silkies, 11 auto sexing EE's and 18 frizzled EE's going in to lock down tomorrow.
I have 15 Blue Wheaten Sulmtaler eggs that were set on 4/9
Also 6 BC Polish, 17 BCM, and 24 Mille Fleur D'Uccle set on 4/15,
I will be setting on 4/18 - 13 Olive Eggers, 4 BCM, 4 CCL and 11 Blue/Buff Cochins.
I might be a surrogate hatcher for Gotro17's eggs. If so, they will be set on Monday as well.
Lots of chikies!!!
Lockdown for 16 GCM's and some other miscellaneous breeds tonight!
Set 19 Silverudd Blue and 7 Isabelle leghorns 3 days ago.

They should be fine - figure that broody hens get off the nest at least once a day. Eggs do not cool down as fast as the incubator does.
Good luck to everyone - happy hatching!!!!
