Yes you better, any pics will do. Show us your progress
The smell is gone today, I'm stumped.. I guess it wasn't coming from the bator after all .. Or it was all in my head..
Oh boy! I want some of these birdie too.. I will get there, by spring for sure ! Until then I'm living through you. So don't hold back on the pictures
I am sorry for asking silly questions...
I started 14 eggs the week before the HAL started. I set another 7 for the HAL. I have one incubator. When my first 14 go into lock down and I have to bump the humidity up to 75%, what do I do with the HAL eggs?
Obviously I need a second incubator, right?
For everyone here that have been adding eggs day after day (like I want to do), how do you handle the day after day adds? Won't they all need lock down 24 hours apart from each other? If it's lock down and I can't open the "bator, how do I get the new eggs in?
Here are the silkie babies I got last May, the 5 I still have are responsible for all the eggs I have in my 'bator
Allllrrrriiiggghhhttt, you asked for it
Not the best pic, but here are the eggies cooking:
Some of their parents:
I have two incubators, one I use for the incubation part, the other for hatching. If the added eggs are only a day or two behind, I just lock them all down at the same time. If they're, say, a week apart, they move over to the hatcher so the humidity doesn't mess with the later eggs. I hope that helps
Went ahead and started my cortunix! 48 of them!
And also, I lied. There are now 17 eggs in the incubator. I swear I won't add anymore (after today ).
Oh! You are going to get some frizzles! Or do you call them Sizzles? I think it's the same thing..lol..they are frizzly and Sizzly! I just hatched some too. I think I showed some of my silkies. I love your birds! Darling! I'm in love with your last one, the dark blue!
Sharing my black frizzle I hatched for the Halloween h a l..and the blue that I just hatched a little later because the ones that hatched before were so darn cute.
I have to go find my blue one..can't find it.
Do you ever sell eggs?
Wait until you see the first pip and raise humidity- should be about day 20 but you never know.
If you have a turner, then take out a section or rails or two. You can also hatch in tomato baskets to keep down the mess.
I have rubber shelf liner in the bottom.
The day or two of higher humidity will not hurt the older eggs.
