    I am placing 17 BLRWs in the bator tomorrow, they just arrived today. Supposed to get some Millie Fleur d'uncles later this week--so i will be staggering my hatches. I knew I was in trouble when I did embryology for the classroom, I fell right back into the vortex of being chicken obsessed again. My 6 year old son is right there with me now lol

    A six year old is the worst kind of enabler [​IMG]

    I am struggling NOT to put any more eggs in the box this week!

    But there's a poultry swap this weekend and if I sell a bunch it's quite likely I'll succumb and set more Saturday night.

    This morning I put 6 Narragansett turkey eggs in the bator.

    There were already 10 GoldNeck & 1 MF d'Uccle eggs in there from Tuesday.

    Tonight I'll fill in the empty space with showgirl x silkie eggs to test hatch...

    I just received 8 eggs from another byc member. They are blue orpingtons. This is my 2nd batch. My very first batch I had 9 out of 24 eggs hatch. I hope to have better results this time. My first eggs almost half were clear so I hope my new eggs will be more fertile. My 9 chicks are doing well and I can't wait for more.[​IMG] I am using a Brinsea 20 eco and it seemed to take good care of me for my fist hatch. Good luck everyone![​IMG]
