    If California grey can produce sex-linked, why not go further & make autosexing breed?

    Not sure why the additional work was not done, they'd gone this far... to just make an auto sexing breed like the cream legals, etc. Someone posted this about a decade ago, " California gray is a breed that is based on the Barred Plymouth Rock X Leghorn It is then crossed back on Leghorn to...

    Day 25 Is it dead or should I keep waiting?

    I know someone whose been trying to hatch chicks with no luck. I visited him on day 23 and asked if I could have the one egg he hadn't tossed yet. I set up a temporary incubator in the bathroom as it's the only place I can get enough heat and humidity at the moment. There is no movement from the...

    It was all planned, but we are an incubator short. Ahhh

    So I had it all planned. Lol One incubator, one crappy Styrofoam back up and as lockdown hatcher. I had both set up to incubate eggs... then our eggs got the boot from the good incubator to make way for quail eggs. So... We debated about buying another Styrofoam incubator --> but in all...
