    I am hoping for black sex links if the pullets start laying. I have LF cochins located as a back up.

    I have a backyard mix. I'm looking for local flock owners that may want to swap hatching eggs for a real treat - a new years surprise!

    I am trying to brew up my own BCMs. I have 3 beautiful and pure BCM roosters, and will be setting eggs from 1st generation layers that came from BCM crosses with Red Sexlinks. All the original hens will be culled in 2 weeks. Since this is only gen1, I'm not really looking for any particular qualities. Gen2 birds should start laying near 7/1/16, so then I will start picking eggs based on color. All gen1 layers will be gone by then.

    This will, however, be my first hatch in my Ova Easy 100...looking forward to that.

    I haven't read the Great Egg Shipping Experiment thread (perhaps I should). I've had great luck rolling eggs in bubble wrap and taping, then I put them in an egg carton that's had the top cut away from the bottom -once the eggs are rolled in bubble wrap they won't fit in the egg carton without cutting the top away from the bottom. Use masking tape to secure the egg carton and pack in lots of newspaper, then double box with lots more newspaper or styrofoam.



    Sarasweatman breeds Anconas, you can find her here by that name or on FB. Good luck!

    [​IMG]Hello ALL! I would like to join in too! I fired up the Hovabator a week ago and everything is looking good. I have a doz duck eggs coming next week from Metzer farms and expect to be able to set them by the end of the week. Just in time for the Hatch-A- long : ) This will be my first time hatching little duckies! Wish me luck!
