Got up this morning and 6 chicks had hatched but the one that opened the shell in the middle did not make it but I do have 3 new Russian Orloff chicks and 2 Molten Houdan chicks and they all look healthy at the moment . All eggs hatched at day 21 .
I have several more eggs in the incubator so I will wait a couple more days and take the incubator apart and clean it out before putting in anymore eggs ..
Congratulations on the chicks that hatched & made it! You seem to have very good hatch & survival rates!
I got 11 eggs yesterday (maybe more),
It was a hectic day & I collected them in spurts in stead of all at once. My Mom went back to the ER, her doctor sent her there when she showed up for her appointment. She has lost 10 pounds in about 10 days. He still has no idea what is wrong with her ( so far none of the doctors have been able to figure that out).
Then we had to leave for graduation. My daughter and our foreign exchange student that we are hosting both graduated high school last night. We ended up not getting to eat dinner until about 11 PM.
Today I am going to Chicken Keeping workshop around 10 AM (about 3 hours from now).
