I had a 20 to 25% hatch rate on my first 3 tries. Got disgusted and bought a new incubator on line - before you ask I don't know the brand offhand. Just a styrofoam model but encased in hard plastic with turner and blower and humidity control. Set 36, 33 fertile and all of them hatched. Was this a fluke or can I expect results like this
most of the time?

I picked up my eggs!!!!!  unwrapping each egg felt like a kid on christmas morning. I got 24 little gifts lol. It was funny because as I was opening them I was like aw I didnt get a marans or welsummer egg. And then TADA the last egg I opened was a marans egg.

 

Here is my batch of 24 eggs I will set this weekend

1000

Our farm is Side Yard Poultry

I am helping my kids with a very small Blue/Splash Silkie flock

~~Breeding Cream Legbar to the proposed SOP~~

Soon to be raising Quality, Standard, Barred Plymouth Rocks

 

I am a Wife and Mother. We have 2 dogs, and our always growing flock of chickens. We have a wonderful miscellaneous laying flock, also Bourbon Red Turkeys and Nigerian Dwarfs!!!

We got our shipment of Chocolate Wyandotte and Chocolate Orpington eggs from Greenfire Farms this morning so we will probably set them on Sunday! I can't wait.

Oh Choc Wyandottes!  I wish I could get some in LF.  They are gorgeous.
