So what's your plan for loading it up, just see how many eggs you can get in a week or order some and do some of your own? I'm excited to hear.hkw you like it.
Well I have about 50 I collected over 5 days that I’m setting in the old incubator tonight or tomorrow, then I plan to collect for 7 days and set what I have. I’m hoping for about 90.

I candled about 1/3 of the eggs in the incubator this morning. Someone isn't doing their job. 12 of the home grown eggs that I candled are clear.

I removed two cracked eggs. One was one of the shipped eggs, one was a HG. All of the shipped eggs that I candled showed signs of development, and most were moving.

I got a huge egg from one of my young hens, I candled it and it looks like only 1 yolk. I’m putting it in the incubator to see if it develops. The yolk inside looks normal sized so it’s a lot of egg white. The dark one above it is from my hen who lays the largest eggs, this is so big considering it’s her first week laying.

I set up some new breeding pens today. I put the pearl fee hens under a falb fee cock, since I didn't end up with any pearl fee cocks. That breeding will give me pearl fees that are heterozygous for Italian. I'll keep a male of those to put back over the hens.

I put my two adult Egyptian hens in with a lavender cock, to start work on my color project.

I have a white cock and a white hen, and those two will be put together.

I've got a Tibetan tux hen. Can't decide if I want to put her with my Tibetan tux cock, to get Tibetan tux, Tibetan, and white chicks, or if I want to put her with a Tibetan cock to get just Tibetan and Tibetan tux chicks.

Oh, and one of my hens that just started laying gave me this today:



It's a Celadon egg :) So that's going into the incubator.
