17/18 Hatched yesterday through overnight. 17 are in the brooder and the 18th egg is pipped and we can hear the baby. We have 10 super blue egg layers, 2 olive eggers. 2 Easter eggers and 3 Ameraucanas.
And to make everything even better, the super blue egg layers are sex linked and they ALL look like girls. (Hmmmm, so does that mean that the other seven that are out are all boys?) I have noticed that although what I've hatched over the years probably totals close to 50/50, each individual hatch seems to have a preponderance of one sex or the other. I've done two all cockerel hatches. One with all girls, another with mostly girls and some with very few girls. Go figure.
#18 of 18 was just delivered by eggcerian section and is drying in the incubator until he can join his friends. Great hatch rate considering I was fighting with the humidity most of the incubation period.
