4th Annual Byc New Year Day Hatch Along

    This is where you will find important information for the 4th Annual BYC NYD Hatch-along.

    Rules
    What would a NYD be without an BYC Hatch-a-long. This year Mahonri's crew has decided to pass the torch on to someone new. I'm assembleing my team and will post important information soo. Just a note, you may want to start lining up eggs soon. (Does anybody want to send me anything fun to hatch? lau.gif )

    On 11 December 2012, at noon local time (or later if you are not home) a bunch of people will be setting eggs. (Duck eggs will be set Dec 4 at noon, others will need to be calculated) Most would call them crazy but I like to think that we are planning ahead. Planning ahead? My reasoning:
    1. Chicks hatched Jan 1 will begin laying in early summer
    2. Extra cockerels will make a great Mother's Day Feast.
    3. Its the perfect time to hatch for late summer shows.
    4. What else is there to do when it is COLD outside than chat with like minded individuals?
    5. There are lots of contests with awesome prizes. (Thanks to the hard work of our AWESOME contest chairwomen we have some really nice prizes starting to come in)

    This list could go on and on.

    To clear up any confusion: Eggs will be set at 12:00 noon LOCAL time. Yes, this does mean that eggs will be set hours apart by different participants. This is why a picture will be needed of a wet chick with an atomic clock in the same picture. Here is a link to a good one.

    When you set your eggs, please post a picture of the eggs so that we can verify how many eggs were set. All eggs need to be seen in the picture. Mstriser will copy the pictures and put them on a page for eggs set for the 4th Annual BYC NYD Hatch-a-long.

    I have the exact same question...Thank you Chickflich2 (for asking)and Mod (in advance for your help). Mattfulleroc

  3. City Chicken
    ok, i've signed up! i'll be hatching 13 for jan 1, 2013 (assuming they are all fertile).
    that last egg will be laid tomorrow morning!
  4. SheriAnn
    I put my full name in the first time, which is not my user name. I am Sheri Ann Richerson and Sheri Ann. Sorry about this. I actually forgot what my user name was.
  5. Shelshanam
    I just want to make sure I'm doing this right. I screwed up the time to put in eggs and set my turkey eggs at 12am on 12/4/12. So I will be adding chicken eggs on 12/11/12 (which now that I'm aware of the proper time will be 12pm). Since my Turkey eggs won't qualify for the first chick (or whatever that contest is) should I just take a picture when I add the chicken eggs for my total?
  6. mamawolf544
    OK one more question. It states all eggs have to be seen in the pic? My chicken eggs will be in my cabinet incubator, and my quail eggs that are set later will be in a Hovabator. How do I handle that?
  7. weaversfarm
    I am new to the site and this contest, so my understanding is these eggs have to be incubated on the 11th? Not before, not after? Just asking because I am getting eggs tomorrow but don't want to wait until the 11th to incubate. Mine will be Christmas babies. :)

  9. MightyMaran
    I have a batch of Buff Orpingtons that are pipping out now and plan on putting Black Copper Marans eggs in as soon as these ones come out which will be sooner than the 11th of Dec. But Good luck to all entering, hope your hatches are great ones!!!!
  10. justdeb1107
    This will be my first time every attempting to hatch eggs! Why not do it with a bunch of folks? :)
  11. Sally Sunshine
    My daughter, Harmony and I are in! Just gotta find some eggs!
  12. MsGreenJeans
    We're in! I'm sure we'll have Buff Orpingtons...I'm hoping to have a couple of banty eggs...but she just hatched a chick, so that's not so likely. Our Fall and Winter seasons are mild, so baby is fine! Sounds like a GREAT start, and one way to NOT plant seeds for setting out later too soon! Best of luck to all!
  13. Acresofchickens
    Yes,
    Where do people get fertilized eggs?
  14. skyangel
    I just ordered fertilized eggs from Meyer. McMurray don't have eggs ready until 2013. I will be incubating before the contest begins so I didn't enter. I will be enjoy watching this contest though :) Good Luck everyone!
  15. Foggy124
    My girls in molting and won't have eggs for another month or so; where is everyone getting eggs this time of year? :-/
  16. RedBrush Farm
    I entered my user name but am not on the list.... Is there anything else I need to do?
  17. tdhenson86
    Woo hoo!!! I just signed up!
  18. mrheinz77
    My time on the actual computer has been limited so it may be a day or two between updates
  19. bnewns
    I noticed my name has not been added although I registered. Can you please add me to the list.
    Thanks
