Oops! I added another egg today!! Couldn't help it. I'm just trying to up my chances of actually hatching some babies. They look all snug and cozy, don't they?

ETA: By the time it's time to candle, I may very well lose my mind. It's SO HARD not to pull them out!! I just wanna see what's going on! I'm a nervous wreck. My mom has already forbidden me to speak about them when we're talking because I talk about and fret about my temps and humidity so much, lol. I might break down and try to candle tomorrow. The kids begging me to do it is not helping, either!

Tossed the TJ eggs. All yolkers, except 1 that looks like it tried to start, but there was a definite, tiny blood ring up around the air sack and nothing else. I had to take 4 of my Bielefelders out too, and of my own eggs, 4 came out as well - ironically, the hen whose eggs I just finished a 100% hatch, this time - they were not even fertile!
A great bunch of laying hens - rocks, 'lorpes, orps, EEs, etc, plus our newest grow-outs: Bieles, BCM, CLs,
SRBs, 55s and a brooder full of darling d'Uccles! Oh yeah, there are the humans too!! Awesome adult twin boys, lovely teenaged daughter, and patient husband! Ephesians 4: 32

That makes me sad!

Me too!
But, my bright side is this: even if I only get 2 Bielefelders to hatch, (3, if theyre all boys), my cost would be the same as ordering the chicks. And, all of my BCM/BR sex link crosses are looking awesome!!

Only like an hour until I set the quail eggs for the hatch a long! Hehehe, and I still have to set button eggs tomorrow for the HAL but after that my incubator is getting a break to be thuroughly disinfected! Don't know if I'll do another staggered hatch. I'll at least plan it better next time, this has gotten too confusing hahah
