First candling of the year, day 5, usually I wait till 7 but I wanted to know I had something fertile in there! And I do!! At least one has good veining already and a lot of the others look right for day five, I think it's 33 in there? And I separated them by rooster because I'm
A dork and my English orp is nice and fertile and doing his job. Such a nice bird, I'm
Considering giving him to someone but I keep changing my mind ... Not sure what to do with him though cause he's huge and the only bird of his breed and he will totally throw lots of black chicks I think... Maybe.., but he's fertile!! Yay!! And that's great cause chicks!!! I'm not wasting my time with the eggs basically. I should know if the rock eggs are fertile in a couple days, I will check in 2-3 days and see how many overall are doing something, my husband collected and we had lots sitting over a week and not all on point though they were being rotated probably a minimum amount so I imagine there will be a number if duds but I only put in the best looking ones from that clutch and then new ones done to my perfectionist standards my goal is a few chicks and hopefully pullets cause how cool would that be anyway so far so good accept I'm having trouble keeping humidity up though it might not be a perfect testing system everything I put in drys out like it's nothing, I'm basically soaking paper towels 2x a day at the moment because I feel like it doesn't hurt to hatch a little dryer but I don't want to drown them if the gauge is off... And the thing in the front of the farm innovators doesn't seem to work anymore not that I was going by that but it's like 10• & a bunch of percent off based on things I trust... A little more... Though my husband did turn on the incubators with the gauges inside... The digital ones, they got fairly melted so good things I bought new ones... Again... Every year... Cannot catch a break I might as well Invest in stock!
