    I have some due 14th and the rest due 20th/21st. This is my first attempt at hatching also.

    Unfortunately today one of my hens either stood on or pecked one of the eggs, a maran egg. I am so sad as I only had 4 maran eggs [​IMG]

    (the others are 6 lavender Araucana and 6 gold lace polish frizzle) I am so nervous and excited at the same time, its ridiculous!

    I have Jersey Giants due the 17th
    Silver Leghorns,Buttercups,a few EE's and one little RIR on the 21st
    then the 26th EE's and Golden Lakenvelders
    Those filled Bator #1 so Bator #2 is warming now.
    Getting ready to set Buff Rocks, Frizzles and a few more EE's this week.Still have some room in that bator as of right now so who knows!
    Anyone need some chicks?
    My JG's suffered thru a major cool down then heat spike but 7 candled well in spite of it all so I'm hoping.

    Cat - sorry about the pecked egg - hope the others do ok

    Natchlaly & hbeuhler - sounds like you are experienced hachters.....I don't know what all those abbreviations mean [​IMG]

    I would like to breed some silkies and frizzles one day but at the moment i have a farmyard bunch of mixed breeds - no pure breeds - but i bet they will be cute all the same! [​IMG]

    I've got 10 fertile / growing lav orp eggs growing in my hovabator.. 3rd hatch for me.. first two were successful. I started this hatch with 16 eggs, looks like 2 are blood ring eggs, 1 I tossed already (clear) and 3 others look like duds.. so I'm left with 10.. fingers crossed no more die on the way to day 21...
    OH> mine should hatch on the 19th of August...
