What a day! I made it through my first hatch (mostly). Got two running around the brooder, 3 more are about done. Whew! The ones running around look really healthy, speedy little legs already, really perky and not sleeping much. Hope they all make it through the night, then I will relax. Will get a good look at them in the morning and see what my guesses are on gender.
Red if you still are interested in any I am headed to Hogle Zoo next Saturday
Would be glad to meet you somewhere. Just let me know. I will post a group pic tomorrow
I should have the other four eggs hatched by Wednesday if you want even newer ones and those make it. If any body else is interested let me know. Otherwise will KSL them in a couple days, a few bucks each to go toward my ever growing feed budget lol! Then onto the BLRW from Donna. Sheesh I hope the bator stays plugged in now
Those will hatch around the 21-22. I am hoping I will be getting enough practice to have a really good hatch with those big brown Marans eggs! I will cry if I lose any of those!
Cynthia--I see why you want to be done. This is stressful. I am not getting anymore eggs either, not this year. I think it is fun to try it, but I could not hatch them all the time, I have a new respect for you, Donna, and Sphinx, anybody else incubating their own. It is really hard to lose one, I did not do too well with that part. I am glad I did not throw them out, so grateful several of you told me to keep trying. Good thing I was on here to get some advice! Thank goodness for good chicken friends on BYC!
