Another update for you....
Yesterday I was 2 for 2 using the egg carton again!
This makes 2 weeks in a row that I hatched 100% of the eggs that made it to lockdown when using the egg carton.

Thats is good news there Chris I hope you've found the answer to your dilemma, LOL remember I told you a while back about the school of hard knocks is how we've learned most of what we know, now. Unfortunate for some things, good for others LOL

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, you can make a purse out of it, but it won't be silk. LOL
 
Maybe in about another 30-40 years I'll get this "being an expert" thing figured out by then. LOL
 
Still trying to practice Granny's advice 'if you don't have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself' LOL been at it for 45 years still don't have it down pat yet!

Sorry to hear about the shipping damage. I wasn't crazy about the way the eggs were packed, but I have seen much worse. Thank goodness he is so generous about extras so you still had a good amount to go into the incubator!

 

The way it looks right now, 7 of the BR eggs I got from Frank are going to make it into lock down on Tuesday evening along with 10 from his Cornish. I will be using the egg cartons with the BR just in case since I want to maximize their chances.

 

I have to get a hold of Jeremy and see where I am on his waiting list: He had estimated March when I asked to be put on the list. I may also get more eggs from Frank depending on how my hatch goes later this week.

 

So, between what I hatch, what I get from Jeremy, and any I can squeeze out of Chris I ought to have a nice little flock of these by fall.

 

The eggs I ordered from the Duckworth line are supposed to be shipping sometime this or next week. Fingers are crossed for a good hatch on those as well.

I got my first chick from my GSBRs on 2/19! This one was from the first 3 eggs I incubated after putting one of my males in with 3 hens. One egg was infertile, one died part way through incubation, the third one hatched.  My next batch of 6 eggs are all fertile and are due to hatch 2/26. My next batch of 8 due to hatch 3/3 are also all fertile! ya.gif

 

Does anybody know if these can be sexed by color or how old before they can reliably be sexed? The females should be a bit darker, right?
