Okay, so a few weeks ago spring fever hit and I decided to throw some of my eggs into the incubator. I put 14 in there. Fast forward a week or so and I candled. I figured most of them weren't going to make it and 1 day old chicks had just arrived at the farm store... YAY!!!! Did I forget to mention I already have 20 chickens from last spring and 8 I hatched out last fall just to see if I could? Oh and I'm a family of 2, me and DH. Selling at my college has helped the overflow of eggs. So I gather 8 more.. well I had to get a couple of each breed, didn't I? Hatching time comes around these past two days... I'm thinking I have no clue how to candle. Of 14 eggs, only one is still sitting in the incubator, the rest are peeping in box I set up. The other 8 are looking great. I seem to be a pro at raising the buggers. All lost chickens has been due to wildlife... and even that is minimal. BTW... if anyone is looking for fat, healthy roosters... I have 8 (currently that I know) I'm willing to part with BTW2... I have a broody hen out in the barn sitting on 16 eggs... not really intentionally, but I felt so bad last fall for kicking her off the last nest I decided to let her have this group.
