Nicely done! The only thing you left out was that Banti misspelled "suspense" and got busted by whites... :plbb

 

And on that note, I'm making another cup of camomile tea and going to bed.

Hey all!! I'm on my third hatch now. Last thing to hatch was a handful of quail about 10+ days ago, and I put 8 more on right away, so I'm going into lockdown for those soon.

My question was though;
(With a short back story)

I've been looking for Buff Orpingtons everywhere and finally got my hands on some from a breeder. He had roosters in with the girls I bought off of him, so I did the reasourceful thing and chucked all the eggs that my new Big fat ladies laid into the incubator. Sure enough, a couple were fertile, and I'm expecting two lovely little Orpington chicks soon in about a week's time.

The catch is! One of the eggs was like a day (or two?) later to be set. So I was wondering if it would be chill for me to put them both into lockdown at the same time? Just because I want them to be able to chat while positioning and pipping away. (I like the three day lockdown, so D-18 for chooks, D-15 quail)

Advice anyone??

Thanks! smile.png

Morning everybody.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Welcome back. Yes, you could do lockdown for both at the same time. People have successfully done lockdown early. An different option would be to wait until you start to see drawdown on the first egg, then do lockdown for both eggs. That way the second egg would be sitting in high humidity for the extra day or two.
