Only the first 24 hours for me so I have a long way to go. Trying not to get to excited but it's difficult.
Anyone else have any other hobbies or starting to gear up for spring and summer gardening? I'm ordering my seeds this weekend for ours.
Yeah same here, I only set the eggs this morning so I haven't got a lot to report, heh!
Definitely starting to think about gardening, even here in frigid NH! I have some pepper plants already going under the grow lamps. I am on a bunch of seed swap lists, so I trade seeds all winter. You should see my seed collection now, it's ridiculous, haha. But I love growing things. :)
As of today I have 20 chicken babies (mixed flock, mainly black sexlink) in my only bator ready for a Feb 1 hatch.
I have 8 turkey eggs (they started laying 4 days ago and getting two more every day) I finally talked hubby into letting me purchase another bator today so I can at least somewhat stagger hatches, without holding eggs for too long. I just hope our other two turkey hens wait to start laying until it arrives.
will be using one for an incy and one for lockdown and hatching. Best of wishes in y'alls hatches!
I am a compulsive candler too can't help myself. I almost die during lockdown.
Hope you get that turner working...it's a huge help.
I candled yesterday because I had to open the incubator to add water anyway. It was only day 2, so I didn't expect to see much. But I thought I could see dark spots on a couple of them, at least! Tomorrow I should be able to tell much better, day 4 is usually a good day for me to see veins and the little winking-eye embryo. :)
