Well its been a heck of a week, I would have had more eggs from my gals but the creek behind the house flash flooded and I had to move everybody 3 days before set date and they didn't lay because of the stress. the water rose quick and I had to lock them inside their coops which I have 2 foot off the ground to make sure they were safe. I had to move all my young-ins new layers into the garage because their coop wasn't finished. They all basically stopped laying for those 3 days, can't blame um. but then a teacher contacted me about 2 dozen she needed to set this week for her elementary class the other person she ordered her eggs from went flaky on her. So I donated the last 2 dozen I collected for the hatch-a-along to her classroom. Then my computer hard drive ate ****, I a now sick from wading through that fridged cold water to keep them fed and watered.
During all this I was able to set the 17th @ high noon 29 standard chicken eggs and 29 Bantam Chicken eggs, so we will see how the hatch goes. I hope really well!
Please excuse the empty spaces in the first incubator, I will be moving the rest of the bantam eggs to the other incubator. and the dirty eggs, my very best hatches and healthy pipers come from uncleaned eggs dry incubated.
