Well, my diabolical hatching plan is finally coming together. The Silkie eggs are still going strong in the first incubator with this coming Saturday being day 21. Broody Betty is still sitting on her six matching Silkie eggs with this Friday being her due date. My second incubator arrived over the weekend. Wife spotted the incubator, but I played innocent. 14 Salmon Favorelles hatching eggs arrived in the mail today with big, red stamps all over it which read "Fragile, Hatching Eggs". Wife found the package on the front step this morning and figured out I was up to no good with the new incubator. She says I cannot turn into a crazy chicken man with the yard overrun with chickens. I promised her that I won't keep all of the ones I hatch, but will probably give some away. I might be able to keep that promise. Anyway, the eggs that came in the mail today were perfectly wrapped. Each was individually wrapped in bubble wrap and taped closed. The box was loaded with more bubble wrap (top, bottom, and sides). There was so much bubble wrap that, at first, I thought all I had been shipped was a box of bubble wrap. These eggs will rest overnight, then into the new Hovabator first thing tomorrow morning. I found an egg from one of my old English bantams today which will get a chance at the incubator. Also any other potentially fertile eggs that show up by tomorrow from my non-virgin hens will also go into the incubator. If I count correctly, that means New Year's Eve is hatching day for this new batch. Hatch On!!!!
