    O.k. so the kids and I decided to try and hatch some chickies out!!! BAtor is set and ready and we added 4 white yard egg mixes of our own and 4 brown mixes. We also have 9 lavender ameraucana bantam eggs sent from a very sweet byc'er to whom we are very thankful!!! She also sent us one bantam cochin egg to try!!! We have some more "surprise guess what" eggs due to arrive soon to add to the hatch so we will be a little staggered but that is ok with us!!! Anyone else setting for a hatch? Would like to have some buddies to chat and share with as we go along the next month with anticipation on what, when, and how our hatch will be!!!!

    Happy Hatching!!

    [​IMG] Yes !!!! Everyone welcome I want lots of pics and updates....we have only done this a couple of times and it was years ago so I feel like a new beginner. We never had a good hatch so we are super hopefull this time. I will have some more eggs arriving next week so the ones we set yesterday then will have a slightly later hatch (if they hatch) as well!!! My computer is really slow and I have not mastered putting pics on here but I promise will try!!!!! Yall oldies be sure and post your pics and share anything us newbies need to be checking and watching for!!!! So we will do our first candle on the 28th to see if we see anything !!!!

    Super excited over here with 4 kiddos wanting to candle RIGHT NOW!!! lol lol [​IMG]
