I would love some! lol
hey OZ what should you start calling the Philippine American cross breed chickens?
just finishing up hatching out a batch (about 30) of buff orpingtons
still have a few pippers & zippers
it looks like an 70% or better hatch out
it turns out my thermometer/hygrometers from a well known company are "boysit" (i'm guessing you learned that word from the locals in the province OZ)
they are only a couple months old & are plain worthless
i thought i could calibrate them.....nope
their temp will not go down to 32f
& now two of the three have a constant reading of 10% humidity :(
i put my old standby internal unit that came with my 1st bator in my hatcher
now we are back to quality hatch numbers
i'll see if i can return this junk & research a couple better units
i guess i'll have to pay more than $20 each for something that works :)
i have 2 broody orps in the coop
i think i'll take 1/2 of my duck eggs & put under one of them
& put 1/2 of my french eggs up under the other
working on finishing up a large broody cage to keep the setting girls safe from the rest of the flock
(it's a large rabbit hutch)
no point in getting the eggs stepped on my other hens
who wish to use the already "inuse" nest boxes.
OZ we need pictures of the new chicks
also what is your exact wheels up date out of California?
i'll be sending another you batch Mate
