Trader Joe's Fertile Eggs - Started 8/11/12 - Page 10

post #91 of 97

This batch of leghorns seems even sweeter than the last.  I think it might have something to do with the cage.  They're in a non-drafty spot, no cardboard walls around them, and they can see us clearly walk by all the time, and when I open the cage, they're never startled and soon as they see food or water in my hand, come running up to me.  Very cute and sweet!   I'm getting a totally different reaction from the supposedly docile breed in my other brooder with high walls where I have to reach down to them all the time.  They obviously think I'm an Owl or hawk!

Just put more TJ fertile eggs in the bator. Accidently broke one. In total 11 in.

Déjà vu!  My last batch I did the exact same thing.  Within a few hours i broke one, LOL.  Ended up with 8 actually hatching!  Good luck with yours!!

This is kind of a stale thread on the topic, last post being over 2 years ago.  Here is a link to an active similar thread.

100% hatch rate, 6 total. not bad for store bought refrigerated eggs. 

 

 

 

I love the pic with the date stamp in it - as it turns out I did not have to enjoy by sept 6, im enjoying them RIGHT NOW

 

 

 

 

And so is my lab partner!

 

 

Is this a Welsummer bantam hen?

In my house there are: 4 barred rocks, 4 welsummer bantams, 3 buff orpingtons, 6 rabbits (mini lops), 1 standard poodle, 1 leopard gecko.
