I am having such a hard time waiting to set eggs until the new year! I put my bators up, but not in the garage, in the house closet, so they are not too hard to get out just in case I cave in....lol. Christmas babies would be so fun.
I was going to let you know, that I did candle last night, day 8. I had to toss several of the big blue eggs, but I still have three that are developing. I could actually see movement in several of the marans eggs! I am excited. I just took them out and put them in another bator where I can keep them a bit warmer than this other bator does. I am hearing for marans eggs, lower humidty, and higher temps. The Olive eggs are looking good to me because the air sacs are developing in almost all..had to toss one that was actually very clear and easy to see into. Well, one, I couldn't tell by the air cell, but since the others looked good, I kept it.
The two big sex link mix eggs are good. :) You know that makes me happy. The big monster egg .. had to toss. I know I tossed 6. The monster egg..three blues, an OE and a marans was very clear.
So, I think I may get me some babies. Hard to believe those big eggs are doing well. I still have one of the huge blue eggs, the other two must be pullet eggs. Those sex link eggs are huge too, I hope they keep going too. :)
