    Is it worth it to order hatching eggs in November??

    Is it worth it to order hatching eggs through the mail in November? (I live in Virginia) I want to order quail hatching eggs but should I take the risk of them getting chilled? Does anyone have experience with how much this will affect the hatch rate?

    Failed Attempt at Hatching Pekin Bantam Eggs

    Hi there everyone! I recently went to a breeder and got 6 Mille fluer and Porcelain Pekin bantam eggs. I have a Janoel 24s incubator. She had been saving them for a week which I have read is perfectly fine. I candled the eggs at day 8 and saw that 5/6 eggs were developing which was great! Soon...

    Will allowing my broody hen to hatch out eggs discourage her from being broody in the future?

    No one told me how broody Australorps could be - omg!!! Mine is relentless and even with putting her in the "broody bin" and giving her daily soaks it can take over a week to break her. I love her but I'm getting so sick of doing this. We don't have a rooster and can't because of city rules, so...

    fertilized eggs got moved inside for 12 hours

    The day after I got fertilized eggs for my broody hen to hatch my husband thought our chickens laid them and brought them inside (our house is around 69/71 degrees). I noticed around 12 hours later and put them back under her. I’ve had 2 of the 5 eggs hatch. One on day 18 and one on day 20. The...

    Is my chicken soft boiling eggs? 😝

    Had this ever happened to you?: I started with 17 BCM hatching eggs I bought for my broody Cuckoo Marans. One disappeared. One she tossed, which cracked and had an embryo in it 😟. I tossed 3 last week that were not fertilized. I tossed two more tonight that were not fertilized. One of the two...

    Help broody mama left her nest overnight after 28 days, should I try incubating eggs?!

    Hi everyone! My mallard duck has been broody for 28 days and yesterday into last night she seems to be done being broody and abandoned the eggs. It got down to about 50°f last night. Would that be too cold to try to salvage the eggs and attempt to hatch them in the incubator? Thank you
