Welcome to @poultryguy
What are you going to hatch?
@MyPetChickenwhen do I need to order my intense colorful eggs to get them here in Joplin Missouri for the Dec 11 egg setting? I don't know anything about doing this.
You select the week you want them shipped on the site. Mine came the following Monday though.
This is the place! Welcome!
OK to all you experienced Hatchers. How do I increase the odds of getting fertile eggs, or should I be pretty good? I have 14 of my 16 hens of laying age having started over the last few weeks. I think most of them are laying now, but I got a pullet egg this weekend and then my count was up the next day. Anyway, I have a rooster that was 6 months in October and one that was 6 months in early November. Are they old enough? Should I separate a few with one of them for a few days, or should they be mostly fertile. I held back eggs from refrigeration the last couple of days. When is the best time to crack a few to check?
I would say go ahead and crack one open and check. If not fertile then wait a week and crack another.
Make sure that they are healthy.
It takes time for the boy to be accepted by the girls, so you do need to check the eggs at first. Patients is key here--It will happen.
Are Isbars blue egg layers? I think they are neat looking birds.
