Mahonri's 3rd Annual, BYC Easter Hatch-a-long! - Page 936

post #9351 of 11360
Thread Starter 

And I have 22 hatched with five pipped and believe it or not, I think that is going to be the end of my hatch.

 

One of the four pipped is a Peachick sumatra!

Another one is a Renee, small dark layer. (so all I'm hatching from her eggs is two... hit.gif)

Another is a sulmtaler, #4 is a Drekki Icelandic and the last is a large Audin Icelandic.

 

Makes me feel badly about the brinsea... sad, but the hovabator and all it's high temps did better!

I have a pip!!! I have no idea what it is, it's one of the eggs SCG sent me. A very dark brown egg. First pip is in the brinsea, which doesn't surprise me. I have the opposite experience to mahonri - my brinsea does great, hovabator not so much.  We shall see!

WHAT?!!  They aren't even due to hatch until Saturday and you are saying it is all done now?!!  You feel bad for the Brinsea?     th.gif     OK I finally understand all the slap talk.  But I seriously think you should man up and give yourself the next one!     lol.png   You might want to wait til at least Monday before you start talking about your terrible hatch in the Brinsea.     idunno.gif

Congrats to everyone with pips and chicks. To everyone who doesnt... patience. They're not due until TOMORROW.

 

Many will start having pips and chicks today. I usually hatch a day early. I woke up to one pip - it's a green egg, I think it's a Mr Heinz but honestly can't recall.

 

I'm off today, so I'm going to try to go back to bed for at least another hour then plan to watch the incubator most of the day. Hopefully it cooperates and has some activity worth watching!

Hey SCG, what are the really dark brown speckled eggs that you sent me? Have a pip in one of those. :)

I was thinking the same thing. I have only one pip out of the 25 eggs in my brinsea and I set early (4AM on set day).

Marans of some sort. Either cuckoo or splash over black EE.
