    Hi! I put 20 eggs in the incubator last night! This is my second time hatching, and I am so nervous and excited! :woot They're from my own flock, so there is a big variety!

    There are Easter Egger eggs in there, along with some White Leghorn eggs, Black Australorps, Light Brahmas, Buff Orpingtons, Black Sex links, Production Reds and New Hampshire Reds; and they'll all be mixed with either Ayam Cemani or Dominique.
    I had been waiting for my Ayam Cemani pullet, "Blackberry" to lay an egg, and she did today! I popped it in today, my Ayam Cemani rooster is the only rooster that mates with her, so if it hatches it'll be an Ayam Cemani :)

    I can't wait to see what they look like! :ya Thanks for reading! Have a blessed evening! :)

    Hahah i was watching the bators everyday!!
    It takes WAY TOO LONG for them to hatch!!

    No gonna lie totally forgot i had a hen setting!!! :he
    My bantam is sitting on eggs right now so im checking the eggs here and there... she will probably set 3 or 4 times this year. It is way easier when they take care of all the hard work lol but still takes WAY TO LONG!!!

    Sorry my internet went down 3 days ago and had to switch phone services to get service on it lol

    It is so hard not to check them and candles them! It take FOREVER!!

    She is a Partrage Cochin. She will go broody probably 3-4 times this year. This is her first set this year... she is a little late usually she has already hatched a set out. She is crazy!! But the best momma ever!! She is sitting on 4 eggs i believe and they are not her eggs. One might be.. But she robed a nesting box full of eggs.
    I candles them last night and I think it's getting close. They are getting darker.. I have to get my egg candle out because I did it with a flash light and can't see 100%!
    I will keep you updated!
