    We are doing our first incubation with 10 Brahma eggs (thanks Geepster!) and a Hovabator. I put them in about 1am on the 21st. Other than an ugly power loss incident yesterday when the plug apparently was slightly out of the wall, all seems to be going well. We'd love to share this journey with someone. [​IMG]

    Hi! I just set 42 eggs in my Genesis 'bator. They are due on May 13th. I have my own Buff Orps, Red Sexlinks(New Hampshire Red roo over Delaware hens) and 6 of Missouri Chick's BBS Orp test hatch eggs. This is the largest amount of eggs I have tried at one time![​IMG] Here's hoping we both have a great hatch![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi, I've got 30 eggs in the bator due about May 9th but I just candled a bunch(maybe 10-12) and it seems some have veining but about half looked clear still. 15 shipped and 15 local but I am using a bulb for heat and the ones nearest the bulb may have gotten too hot. I'll be happy if 10 hatch! If mine are late and yours are early, we can be hatching buddies! Good Luck!

    I set 6 goose eggs that are due on May 13th. I have never tried to hatch geese so this is a new experience. I also have a variety of chicken eggs that are due on may 4th ( silkies EE and banties). Hoping you both have a great hatch.

    I have eggs due to hatch on the 10th, 4 are frizzled cochin/silkie mix and I have 18 that are mutt eggs from a neighbors egg that will go back there when hatch. I have 1 turkey due that day also if its fertile, I am having a hard time tell on it all the other 15 had nothing so it could be a blood ring that I am putting to much hope in.
