I'm keeping my fingers crossed cuz the turner wasnt turning for liek a week and i didnt realize it. The humidity has been good though so hope they all still turn out. WE're on day 18 now!

    Yup, got mutts in my bator too [​IMG] Some are a possible mixture of these breeds..... Buff Orps, Australorps, Chanteclers, Blue & Black Cochins, BLRWyandottes, GLWyandotte, Lt Brahma, EE's, Black Cochin, Blue Lace Red Wyandotte, Blue Orpington.... and the other mutts are from a friend who knows nothing about her chickens really. They just went to the Amish and said "We need chickens" LOL Looking at them though... I was thinking some look like red sex-links and she thought some of the new hens were RIR's.. most of the eggs were brown, but some were cream... we shall see [​IMG]

    They are from Julie (jab91864) I have 18 in there and hoping all are doing well I am on day 18 and just put them in the carton and bringing up the Humitiyt. Julie says that her mixed eggs have alot of blue in them guess Mr Orp gets around LOL
