An update on the hatch. My numbers were off.
236 viable eggs. 115 hatched. 49%
Local control group
33 viable eggs 29 hatch 88%
Prior shipped hatches were in the twenties.
Really? That is quite interesting. I have found if I have good fertile eggs under the broody I run a 90-100% usually 100% actually. I think only once did I have an egg not develop fully, but then I have only done broodies 4-5 times. Have some eggs under a turkey hen now for the first time. Will see how that goes.
booooo on the brahma
This is great proof of what you have achieved thru hard work, study and all those helpers here and at coco beach. Pretty amazing!
Thought I would include a photo of the chicks I hatched out with their broody momma.
