    I just set my eggs a few minutes ago and was wondering if anyone else set theirs today or tonight? It would be neat to hatch along with someone else.


    I just put in:

    5 Pure Muscovy Eggs
    5 Runner/GC Eggs
    3 EE Eggs (possibly X's)
    4 LH-X
    8 Mixed Brown Eggs

    All the ones with hearts on them are from my girls, then there's the Mix & Muscovy Eggs [​IMG] All the others, including the blue one, are due to hatch any day!

    and YES that's 2 new babies in the corner..had to help them hatch so they're stuck in "bed" for a day or so, lol.

    Almost forgot...the one wit a clover was for good luck, I'd be surprised if that funky thing hatches!

    its an LG still air. i bought it for $10 WITH a turner from someone i bought silkies from...she had only used it once but it was out in her barn so it was kinda dirty...works great though [​IMG]

    i have a better time keeping humidity with the sponges/rags rather than in the water trays though...not sure why.

    I set 50 Buff Orpinton eggs on the 12th. I will be candling them on Saturday to check their progress. This is the second set of BO Eggs that I have had shipped in. The first time I hatched 17 out of 20 eggs that I set. I hope that I have as good of Luck with this set!

    I wish i could get some frizzles locally, i miss my old roo!

    mine might hatch a little bit early, i have the temp a little higher because of the duck eggs...they seem to do better at a little bit higher temp.

    I just added 2 duck eggs i found in a hidden nest...my hen is FAMOUS for digging a nest out then covering the eggs with dirt! lol. i am constantly watching for 'odd' looking areas of dirt or shavings around the bird area.

    I'm not sure how old they are so i will be checking them tomorrow since i only set them yesterday...*fingers crossed*
