Air bubbles are looking okay so far, So on the 19th day for the first egg I'll go into lock down. Hopefully it isn't in a hurry!

This Saturday I have jap quail going into lockdown, and then directly after I have the orpingtons! It's nice and busy hatching wise and I love it!

Yes, from my own flock. It definitely is a learning experience, if one of these eggs hatches I've learned never to do this again! 😂😂😂 makes you wonder how the heck the hen does it!

Oh, you have to do it again!

Yup, gotta agree there. @Ladyfarm , you will be tempted to "help" if nothing happens after pipping. The urge will be nearly uncontrollable. Just sit on your hands - come on here if you want to be distracted or talked out of messing with them. They do best when left alone. (The notes do suggest when it's time to help, of course - some people don't ever help, though.)

 

Speaking of hatching... Look what we have here! Seems like someone is saving GNH eggs out of Tank's coop now that I've gotten two eggs two days in a row...

 

 

 

Pullet eggs or not, if I'm not careful, these might fall into the incubator...

"Retromingent: Urinating backwards. Also an animal such as a raccoon that urinates backwards. As in: "You have revealed yourself as a miserable, carping, retromingent vigilante, and I for one am sick of wasting my time communicating with you" (Benjamin C. Bradlee, Editor, The Washington Post)"

 

Everywhere I look, THIS is the example of using retromingent in a sentence. :lau
