    I love that..."barnyard blends!"


    I'll be [​IMG] hatching my own if all goes well. Mostly EE's unless I get a "barnyard blend" and maybe a few OEGB if she stops holding out on me.

    We should have 3 random posts, guess eggs set and guess chicks hatched. There may also be a Ginger bread contest and a funky chick hatched contest.

    I am thinking about a best hatch a long member too.

    Turn the light on early in the morning, a few hours before sunrise. If it's a plugin lamp, use a Christmas tree timer. My father did some research while deciding how to program my X10-controlled hen house light and found out that it is best to add extra light before dawn and to let sunset be the "lights off" time.

    FYI- My two pullets are laying fine with just 13 hours of daylight.
