i love to incubate. but my hatch rate on the first hatch was horrible.

i think the calls are just too fragile for it, so unless i have a really good hatch this round, i will leave it to the hens and only use the incubator if someone needs help or i have a hen ditch the eggs. (or i have too many eggs and no hens or buyers lol) <--- insert devil smiley

one egg still looks questionable.

but im left with 13 eggs =/

they had set on the dresser longer than i wanted to collecting how many i wanted and sending julie hers.

but overall not that bad i guess. its the older eggs that are quitters.

 

waiting on it to warm up a little before i go check for ext pips under the hens.

oh and lastnight we checked the little tiny red hen (due the 11th)

and man was she vocal.

she screamed bloody murder at us you woulda thought we cut off her legs or sumthin.

she had 5 eggs i bloodring the rest doin good.

so looks like for wednesday i have 15-16 eggs right on track =) so i expect maybe 10 babies wednesday.

and hopefully 9-10 this weekend.


my broody is like that to, i finnaly decided to let he keep the eggs, cause she has been sitting the whole week even when i empty the nest lau.gif

As far as the electric tape, I'd cut as much off as possible then use oil to break up the adhesive and remove the rest. Poor baby, lol.

thanks guys it is from the inside of my incubator, i put in a fan and taped the wired up so no one would get tangled. i guess all the steam lossened it right up th.gif

 

as far as cutting it is almost over his eye and i am so afraid of hurting him/her, but i will give it a try hide.gif

Good idea, he will be pokey. And I'm hoping he is the tom I've been wanting because he will be one of my keepers. Anything this slow and lazy from the beginning can't be a girl...lol.
