I wrote a great big post last night then got booted off line, lol...... So here goes again!!! YEAH, that Peanut is doing well!!!! Congrats to all on your new eggs and good candling!!! Sorry for the those that lost eggs/chicks!!!
I have some Faverolle, they are new to me. I've got 8-7 week olds and 5-3 week old pullet that I bought as chicks, so I started with Light Brahmas and added the Faverolles and seeing great minds do think alike, I like your thinking, lol.....
On a sad note I lost one of my 7 week old Dorkings, I think it was the heat but not sure, so I'm down to 1 of them, pouts..... Good thing I had 6 Dorkings hatch on the 10th of July, phew!!!
I love my 2 new LB chicks(from 12 shipped eggs)!!! They are sooo much lighter than my stock, hoping they cross in well next year.
I too went crazy when I first started hatching, went from one bator to 2 bators and added a 3rd. I came to my senses and sold bator #3 so down to 2 of them which is more than enough!!! I'm safe from ordering eggs right now as both bators are full!!! I set 39 LB eggs on the 11th and 37 Guinea eggs on the 15th. This is my first try at the Guineas. The Guineas are cool colors, some are dark purple, some are blue and some are chocolate. So the wait is on......
Sweety13, I had some trouble with the LG at first, then someone posted a thread to "tips on LG incubators" find that link, worth reading!!!! The LGs are so sensitive that they are easy to over adjust!!! I added caps to the adjuster and it helped a TON!!! Also learn to not touch it once it's right, add plugs and subtract plugs to help keep temps where you want them. I add one plug at night when it cools off and pull it again in the morning this seems to be all I need to do to maintain the right temp without over adjusting the control. Give it a try!!!
After reading all the posts, I HAD to go candle last night at midnight, lol..... I candled 21 LBs and all but 1 looked good, we will see, looks like this could be a big hatch for me!!
Anyways, I hope you all are well and enjoying the summer. Be safe and I'll catch up again when I can!!!! B.
