I turned Emily the pullet out with the flock yesterday! Here's the last update for her.
Thats freaking awesome, glad she healed up well for you!
So while I'm waiting on some legbar eggs from Pam I set a few eggs from my mixed flock last night. First off, I must say I am very impressed with the Brinsea and I'm sure this is no surprise to most of you. I mean, I plugged the thing in and within 30 minutes it's was pegged on 99.5 and 45% humidity and stayed there. I got an Accurite combo hygrometer from wally world and it seems to be fine. I'll post updates when I candle them on day 7. This is my 3rd try at hatching and I already feel much better about it with the Brinsea.
Isnt that thing amazing? I mine
Your broody an babies are so adorable!
Xs 2! Power went out here, not only did everyone hatch, but on time even! I had only covered the bator in blankets to keep heat in. Like 3 hours total it was out.
Those things are the best money can buy IMHO!
Smh im sorry it went kinda bumpy. While i was Grandmas caregiver, she was in the hosptial for a fall, the meds had her hallucinate, and she was a dementia patient... It took Hours once to convince her that the hosptial wasnt on fire...
Did you want hatchery or heritage stock RIRs? Big difference... Im in Baton Rouge area, no good for you
I know at least two of my customers want silkies, PM me and maybe we can sell em for you
Ive candled on day three before, like Camping told ya, theres really hardly ayrhing you can see so its not really worth it. I candle on days 7,14 and 18. Day 7 you can usually see alot of veining and a little movement. I wait until day 14 to remove "clears" and "early quitters." At that time, the eggs would be Very far behind, if theyre still alive, so i can let myself toss em. And of course on day 18, im looking at whos alive and locking down. Hatching and Candling is all Very addictive, beware!
Yay! that the Isbars make it! When do you call lights out on the bator? Is it a set day or anything? Ive been pretty lucky that theres been an obvious time for me, each time so far... I gotta get outside an take pics one of these days. FF is working well for me, ive only had a hard time just recently: tryn to introduce the littles to it, theyre wiping their lil beaks off each time like they accidently ate poop or sumthin :-/
