I'm in, I'm in, and I'm so Eggscited!!!! I am really looking forward to this month. My beautiful blue silkie Princess, FINALLY, gave me a couple of eggs to hatch! She is older, and some have very thin shells, but one definitely has a nice strong baby inside!!! I NEED that chick to hatch!!!
And...I have exchanged my beautiful black Ameraucana rooster, who was not doing his job, with an even more beautiful black Ameraucana rooster (he's been daddy to some amazing potential National show winners,) and I can't wait for my first babies from him!!!
I have three batches going at the moment that are a combo of silkies, and rocks, and I will be adding Ameraucana's to the incubators ASAP.
Here is what I have set so far:
18 due to hatch on May 3rd: 7 rocks, 8 blue silkies, 3 of her white silkies
More due to hatch on May 10th, including one from Princess my gorgeous prize winning older silkie!
Infertiles due May 16th. These are a test batch to confirm that my 8 year old Easter Egger rooster is truly infertile and ready to be put out to pasture ( mom likely none of these will hatch, and I will pitch after candling on the 5th.
More due to hatch on May 17 and 18th.
Thanks so much for feeding my addiction! I am just thrilled to be part of another Hatch-a-long!!!!! My very first one in April was a blast!!!!!!!
