    I set some of my own eggs on the 15th so they are due to hatch Feb 5th. This is my second try at hatching, first time with my own eggs. 4 Silkie 2 golden laced cochin and 2 mystery eggs my son begged me to add. I have no idea how good my fertility will be but I thought I would set a couple and try out the new fan we put in the bator. My last hatch did not go all that well, due to I am sure my error. I made a mistake in the end last time with my humidity. This time around DH has installed a fancy computer fan with a glowing blue light! Temp and humidity are holding much more steady. So we will see how it turns out!

    Hatching Feb 2 (I think) Better check the calender! And I just set another dozen today. Haven't figured out when they'll hatch yet. I guess in 21 days! [​IMG]

    Well, I don't mean to hijack the thread, I'm a few weeks off,but I'm planning to start on Feb 28 so I can get a hatch on the first day of spring. I'll probably keep the bator going for at least a few months unless a few of my hens go broody.
