After yesterdays surprise of all sebbies and the regular toulouse showing spiders, today I found that the muscovys (pied and lavanders) are all also spidered, and two more old english games have shown now (it was 1 of 7). All serve to remeind me to give them 10 days before last call.
I'm telling you, Iain, I'm gonna assist every egg in that bator, if it comes to it. I know what to do, and I'm going to get over my antiquated notions about unpipped eggs.
I hope Erins other two come around, they look very good otherwise, but one is a bit watery. From what I've read, the large goose eggs are not only the hardest eggs to hatch, they ar as delicate on the inside as a quails, and it is not uncommen to only get a 50% hatch from good local eggs. (but if I get one, I'm gonna eat it!)
If your dewlaps candle w/spiders, let me know. PM me, and let me know your ladys contact, if she's willing. DH and I were talking about your eggs today. I've shown him some pics, and he's on board. I just hope their are some laying in 3 weeks. I dont think I could have room until 4 days before easter, when I can spare a bator. I would like to make neccessary arrangements before the fact, though. Where is she again? State wise...

I also see spiders in all 6 new Cayuga eggs on day 4. I have a great feeling about them!
And, dare I say it.. I think I see a teeny beginning spider in the one intact air cell Toulouse egg from Erin. Stilll holding out hope for 2 others too.
I understand. After two crap haches in a row, on the tail of a very modest hatch, I'm feeling like I must be jinxed, but I know in fact there was a problem, and I've got to get it fixed. So, bleached a bator, ordered more fresh eggs from recomended sources, ordered two more bators when I got a little overzealous in the new egg and ebay dept, and life goes on.
I'd help. I used t say no, but I'm coming around on this. There are many reasons to hatch, and a bad hatch doesn't mean a weak or bad baby. Every Egg is Important.
